Past Community Event: The Curious World of Kelp
We are very pleased to organize our Annual Free Community Event, and as you guessed, this year, it will all be about the kelp!
Why is there seaweed on our beaches? Where do they come from? How many kinds of kelp exist along our coast? Why do some seaweed or green others are brown or pink? What are the bulbs for? Is the kelp really in danger? Why?
This educational event is organized in partnership with the Pacifica Library and will happen Friday, August 3rd from 6:30 to 8PM (doors open at 6PM) and will answer all these questions!
