COST: Zip. Zero. Nada. It's FREE!

Attention all snorkelers and SCUBA divers! Confused about how to tell a bryozoan from a cnidarian? Don't know the name of that really cool nudibranch you keep seeing at V-point? Curious about the REEF Monitoring Project and local marine life?

Join the San Diego Oceans Foundation's REEF identification training program. You'll learn to better understand what goes on just beyond the surf zone!

Whether you're a marine biology undergrad, an avid snorkeler, or a newly certified diver, this class will leave you with a ton of interesting facts about our underwater world...and it doesn't stop there! Once you've finished this fascinating course, you'll be able to perform REEF surveys and record your observations online for all scientists to use and analyze. It's fun, it's easy, it's FREE - and best of all, REEF surveyors can help give scientists a better picture of our beloved underwater environment.

If you can't make this class, upcoming classes are held the 3rd Wednesday of each month:

Fish ID classes (Sept, Nov, Jan)
