Using our iPads this week, we will clean up beach litter and record it using the Litterati app.  Examining the distribution of litter and its characteristics, we will learn a bit about the difference between point and non point source pollution.  We will also examine the threat to marine wildlife that plastic pollution, in particular, presents.  We will also meet volunteers from the BeachWatch program to participate in the data collection necessary to that program.  Various beautiful beaches and bay front locations will be the subjects of our attention including Muir Beach, Stinson Beach, Agate Beach, Baker Beach and bay front beaches in Tiburon, Sausalito and the east side of the Marin Headlands.   This week will include one kayaking trip on Bolinas Lagoon and boogie boarding at Muir Beach and Stinson Beach.  DROP OFF/PICK UP:  Mill Valley Middle School Skate Park
