A good event. The professor Martin made a good case for keeping the kelp rack on the beach. Thank you Wendy Warner. Where was the lagoon crew?

Thank you John. It was a very informative event. I have learned so much about the difference of bacteria and water quality since the lagoon issue. It was nice to have learned even more from the two speakers. Jennifer and Karen were great. A big thank you to these women who understand the importance of the entire beach ecology.
