Our Spring Break Day Camp for Grades K-2 will find us exploring, playing games and creating crafts relating to the plentiful mudflats along Richardson Bay.  We will learn about the birds, fish, and other creatures that inhabit the cordgrass, pickleweed, and saltgrass shores.  Exploring at high tide, low tide, and all of the tides in between will allow us to learn which creatures are out and about when and why!  A mystery to be solved:  What is all of that black goopy stuff under the mud? We will help to restore the marsh with native plantings and litter pickups. We meet rain or shine!   Daily Drop-off/pick-up:  Mill Valley Community Center
