The December, 2012 issue of “Between the Tides” is now available! This issue describes an extension to the California Coastal Trail along the Dardanelle Trail through the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. Improvements to the existing trail that winds through the magical cypress forest on the bluffs overlooking the Reef include: a new bridge over San Vicente Creek; and widening the trail and finishing it with fresh gravel over a special geotextile fabric underlayment.
This issue also contains articles on the mussel clump habitat, visiting the tide pools at Carmel Point, and scenes from the Volunteer Appreciation Barbecue. Enjoy!
