I headed down to Mariner’s Point in Mission Bay to help Ernie out with his high school biology field trip.  The objective of the trip was to transect a sandy beach habitat to see what lives there.
The students broke into 3 groups of 3 and were assigned sections of the transect from high water mark to about knee-deep.
The sand proved to be a little difficult to get the cores into so some new techniques were devised.
