Our entertaining and highly knowledgeable lead docent was Dr. Freeman Hall, assisted by volunteer Worth Hall.
Freeman Hall , one of the most knowledgeable and respected docents in the San Luis Obispo Coast District State Parks Docents group, led a group of ten fascinated participants on this beautiful sunny day. Of the many species of plants , animals, and birds identified , particular delight was had in examining this Thornback Shark , these Heermanns Gulls , Long-billed Curlews , and these Sanderlings . A large flock of Royal Terns colored the beach and sky. The finale was the observation of about 35 endangered Snowy Plovers .
