Monster Bacteria & Other Suspicious Critters - Alviso

Mar 29Cyanobacteria

10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Come explore the salt marsh’s hidden inhabitants. See monster bacteria, some of whom love rotten eggs. There are more of them than us. What makes the air we breathe? Microbial biologist Wayne Lanier knows. Join him for a short hike where we will use field microscopes to dive down into a tiny world, an ecology hidden from view. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to see the marsh closer than you ever have before! Dress warmly. Ages 8 to 80 years. Register at or call 510-792-0222 ext. 362.
