Word on the Street

Located at Moss Beach on the San Mateo County Coast, the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve is a wonderful place for children to explore and learn about the marine life in the rocky shores.  For a visit to be successful, timing is everything:  at high tide, it's just a slippery, rocky place to splash around, but at low tide, the tide pools -- and the marine life in them -- begin to emerge.  Any low tide below +1 feet will uncover a wealth of plantlife, fish and invertebrates.  On low tide weekends, docents are on hand to talk about the reef creatures.  Also, watch their website for more information on Summertime Family Fun Days.
