Good opportunity for viewing diversity in the intertidal

There are great low tides over the next few days. Though we haven't worked our way up to the easily visible taxa in class yet, we'll get there, and if you haven't observed the diversity of organisms in tide pools it's a treat. Here are the low tides today through Wednesday:

Sat 1/19 1:58pm -1.2 (this means 1.2 ft below mean lower low tide)
Sun 1/20 2:42pm -1.5
Mon 1/21 3:23pm -1.6
Tues 1/22 4:01pm -1.4
Wed 1/23 4:37pm -1.1
