Optional Field Trip 1 - Snorkeling at WHOI Pier

Our first optional field trip was to the pier pilings in the small boat well at the WHOI pier and to the MBL pier by Garbage Beach on Weds., Sept. 7, 12:30-13:30.

Thanks to Maya for joining me to sample quickly at the pier before the Oceanus came back in, and then also thanks to Jeanette for being an intrepid new snorkeler in about 2-ft visibility waters!

Please see the attached file for notes on the 7 phyla that we sampled.
