Somewhere between 60-70 people converged on the beach at Point Pinole on Sunday, December 11 to explore. The talented Alison Young from California Academy of Sciences demonstrated the coolness of iNaturalist and answered a billion questions about the animals we found out there in the mud. Her timelapse camera captured this:

My big thanks to Alison for coming out and all that she does to connect people to the wonders of nature.
If you can get yourself to the shoreline over the next few days, particularly in the late afternoon before sunset, I recommend it. It's peaceful in a really important way.
