In-Person Field trip to MacKerricher State Park!

Explore MacKerricher State Park!

Bring your learning to life with an in-person field trip to MacKerricher State Park. On your field trip, you and your students will join Interpreter Kat Gabrielson for a guided hike through MacKerricher State Parks’ Laguna Point Boardwalk and tidepools!

Prior to your field trip, we recommend you…

“Dive in” to the unique habitats of tidepool creatures and harbor seals with this 2-hour in-person field trip experience! This provides you and your students the opportunity to join us for an immersive experience in MacKerricher State Park and the MacKerricher State Marine Conservation Area. Students will explore the MacKerricher State Park tidepools to find and identify common tidepool creatures, their unique adaptations, and potential threats to this fragile habitat. During this time, students will learn what a Marine Protected Area is and why these protected areas of the ocean are important.
