Exploratorium Hike to the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay Wildlife Reserve

Wayne

We will meet at noon on Sunday, July 9th, in the Upper Parking Lot of the Visitor Center, 9800 Thornton Avenue, Fremont, CA. Shown below is the predicted TIDE PLOT for Saturday and Sunday.

Tide Plot for the Exploratorium Trip to the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay Wildlife Reserve on Sunday, July 9th, 2006.

As part of the Hiking With A Field Microscope component of this trip, we will visit two sites where the tide may play a role in determining Salt Marsh Micro-communities.

One is out on the Tidelands Trail West of the Visitor Center:

DonEdwards Site 1 Standard Sampling.
…and the other is in the LaRiviere Marsh near the entrance road to the Visitor Center.

Donedwards Site 2 LaRiviere Marsh Pond
Both of these are sites where I have collected samples and determined Micro-communities. Both of these are also sites where tide and seasononal rain fall may play an important role in the integrity of the Micro-community.

In previous summers, these salt marsh ponds have displayed floating colonies of green algae and purple non-sulfur bacteria. This is shown in my web site Hiking With A Field Microscope. This summer, these ponds do not show any floating communities at all.

    Hi, Cris…

    I need to link two sentences to the Map site. I have not yet been able to manage the link. Could you help link”

    …on the path West of the Visitor Center…

    to the Map picture of the site.

    and…

    …near the entrance road to the Visitor Center…

    to its Map picture.

    This way, visitors can click on the text and go to the Map picture of the site.

    Wayne,

    At the moment we do not have a good way to link text to a detailed, specific location on the map. My suggestion is to do this manually and then make a screen capture of the results. You can then embed or link to that captured map closeup.
