Little treasures

This past Friday biology students went to Boiler Bay near Lincoln City to do some tide-pooling.  Several students spotted starfish, a promising sign after seeing the population of starfish nearly die off a couple years ago from a starfish blight. Students also visited Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport to learn about coastal animal adaptations. This hands-on lab allowed students to hold some critters they may not have experienced before: ghost shrimp, leather sea stars, shore crabs, and more!
