Explore the WeepApril 27
10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Join microbial ecologist Dr. Wayne Lanier on a short van ride to study microbial communities. The Weep is a shallow persistent pond fed by seepage. Throughout the year, it undergoes very wide swings in salinity and the result is a uniquely rich microbial community of Cyanobacteria, Archeabacteria, Diatoms, Dinoflagellates, and protozoa. We will compare Weep salinity changes to tide-driven salinity changes measured by Student Scientists in LaRiviere Salt Marsh ponds in Fremont. Boots are recommended! Ages 10 and up.
