Tide Pools at Cape Arago

May 25, 1985

We arrived at the Oregon Research Institute of Marine Biology Headquarters in Charleston at 10 a.m. and Dr. Bayard McConnaughey led the group over to the South Cove of Cape Arago. Low tide exposed feather boa kelp, sculpin, nudibranch, “blenny eels”, gumboat chiton, limets and other plants and animals.

Our next stop was lunch along the Shore Acres trail, a quick look at the nesting cormorants, and a tour through the Botanical Gardens. Before leaving Charleston, Bayard showed us through the OR. I.M.B. research and animal labs and ended with the sperm whale display at the lecture room.

Exploring the tide pools is a great experience with an expert like Bayard. We all thanked him: Rose Marie Aleacia, Sue Archibald, Dorinda Bankston, Ted Briles, Janie Beeghly, Rick Bitner, Derik and Marna Brockhoff, Bernie Claypool, Dallas and John Cole, Jean Harriot, Gladys Grancorvitz, Frederick and Gudrun Hondel, Mike Horowitz, Mae Jackson, Joan Keigher, Whitey Lueck, Anne Montgomery, Dave Predeek, Alys Riley, Margie Sherman, Nola Shurtleff, Mark Skinner, Marie-Ann and Andy Thompson, Jenny Wilson, and leader Dot Leland.
