Aren’t you ever curious about what live in the Pacific Ocean along the SF coastlines? PKUAANC SOFT invites you to an amazing double-header trip at the best time of the year. The ocean near Half Moon Bay will reach one of its lowest tidal points around 4:40pm on Saturday Jan 30th.  You will get to see abalones, sea urchins, sea stars and much more. Before that, we can take a short hike in nearby McNee Ranch State Park. Both parks are free to enter. You can choose to sign up for either event. Don’t miss this chance. The same kind of opportunity won’t come in another ten months.
