What a day! On August 10, 2014, Reef Check Staff and Volunteers teamed up with The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel in Dana Point, California to give children and adults a close encounter with marine life in Salt Creek. The day started out with captivating slide shows by two Marine Biologists, Leslie Hart from the Eco-Adventure Center at the Ritz Carlton and Colleen Wisniewski from Reef Check. These presentations introduced guests to creatures that they were about to encounter. They were then guided along the beach where still photos from the slide show came alive! Participants explored tidepools and interacted with Reef Check Staff and Volunteers.
