Discover Marine Life at Lake Merritt

  • Rotary Nature Center 600 Bellevue Avenue Oakland, CA, 94610 United States

Did you know that organisms from all over the world make their home in Lake Merritt? 

Naturalists from the Rotary Nature Center will guide you through a hands-on experience with marine invertebrates that live on the boat docks. Come learn about sea squirts, sponges, flatworms, bubble snails, and more! We'll talk about how to find these organisms and why they're here. 

We'll meet in front of the Rotary Nature Center and walk over to the boat house. Be prepared to lie down on the docks and get your arms wet, or just stay on the sidelines and see what the naturalists find.
