The latest issue of Between the Tides reports on the Friends of Fitzgerald Marine Reserve’s successful second-place finish in Half Moon Bay’s Fourth of July parade. The issue also features an article on jellyfish, a review of Sy Montgomery’s wonderful book, “The Soul of an Octopus”, and a profile of biologist Dr. Karen Kalamuck, who recently became a volunteer naturalist at the Reserve.
As promised, there’s a page of favorite photos contributed by long-time friends of the Reserve, including this one of a red abalone by naturalist Julie Walters.
Readers are invited to submit up to five photos taken at the tidepools for possible publication in a future issue. Please limit your selection to five, and include a short description. Send your photos to email@example.com.
