Welcome to our naturalist-led day together. The Gray Whales and Tidepools of Davenport Landing.
How to Dress:
Please be prepared for a hot sunny day or a cool fog laden one. Dress in layers with an outer shell such as a windbreaker. Please bring a lunch and water bottle on the hike. Be sure to have sunscreen. Cameras and binoculars packed in a daypack. You will need shoes that can get wet ( no flip flops) for tidepooling at Davenport Landing. Sandals with a back strap and some tread are acceptable for tidepooling and during our coastal hike. Light weight pants that you may change into after tidepooling are recommended for the coastal hike as it may be brushy. Please bring a face mask or buff and personal hand sanitizer. Walking poles can be handy.
Distance We Will Hike
Davenport Landing: 1/2-1 mile round trip over sand; leisurely pace while tidepooling and then another 1.5 mile round trip hike along the Davenport bluff with a short but fairly steep incline to reach the bluff.
