Thursday Evening Entertainment with Steve Webster 

There are good reasons why Monterey Bay is a center of marine biodiversity from its shoreline to the depths of the submarine canyons. And it is for this reason that Monterey Bay has become a center for marine research and education, with over a dozen marine science/education institutions around its shores. Steve will discuss what it is that makes this area special below the waves, and what users of the coastal trail in this area can appreciate, if not see, as they look seaward from our shoreline. And how how our marine communities are reacting to the reality of rapid climate change.
