One of the best parts of Moss Landing Marine Labs is getting out into the field after learning in the classroom, and applying your knowledge outside. We ask questions like, Why does this particular organism occur where it does? You begin to notice that a particular type of algae loves waves or that banana slugs eat dead plant material like redwood bark. Taking walks around the local state parks, such as Henry Cowell, can be an eye opening experience everyone can do. Just be careful where you step, the UC Santa Cruz mascot is right at your toes!
