About 200 Los Osos Middle School seventh-graders had the opportunity this week to do some hands-on learning in the Morro Bay Estuary.
Staff at the Morro Bay State Park Museum of Natural History spent a few hours over two days teaching the students in the museum and out in the salt marsh area of the estuary.
The students learned about plant and animal adaptations, vertebrate bodies, animals’ teeth and estuary ecosystems, according to a museum docent.
Los Osos Middle School teachers and parents served as chaperones.
