Giant Kelp Micro-habitats

Sunday, July 11, 2021
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Join CMA Education Staff for a Giant Kelp Holdfast Dissection as we look into the micro habitats of Giant Kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera).

Ever wonder what organisms make their home at the bottom of kelp?

We will dissect the holdfast (bottom attachment) of a Giant Kelp, and discover the variety of mollusks, crustaceans, echinoderms and more that make it their home.
