Leo Carrillo State Park

Explore – Leo Carrillo State Park

The tidepools of Leo Carrillo are an incredibly unique place where many plants and animals live together under extreme conditions. Meeting on the edge of the Santa Monica Mountains in Malibu, freshwater streams into the ocean creating a natural estuary. Here we explore what a tide pool is, what kinds of living things you’ll find in them, and why they’re important. Along with learning all about tide pools, we discuss how humans impact this special area along with deep ocean animals. By learning about this ecosystem, you can help become a protector of this special place.
