Tijuana Estuary – Can Salt Marches Help Fight Climate Change?

Tijuana Estuary Virtual Field Trip (6-8th) – Can Salt Marshes Help Fight Climate Change? 

Salt Marshes thrive in one of the most dynamic natural environments. Despite this, they have the ability to sequester (take in and store) carbon better than most other plant communities. Students will join a California State Park interpreter standing on the edge of the salt marsh along a tidal channel. Together they will learn: What exactly is a salt marsh? What are their unique adaptations? How might they fight climate change?

Join PORTS at Tijuana Estuary Natural Preserve to explore how the secrets of the salt marsh help to study and protect our changing climate on Wednesday, March 24 at 12:00 PM.  You can expect to join our interpreters to virtually guide students in building observation skills through nature journaling, discover salt marsh habitats and adaptations, or explore some of the real-time data to monitor the health of estuaries.

A link to join this live virtual field trip will be shared with students that RSVP.
