Local Seal Populations, with Laura Yale


  • Date: Saturday, January 24th.
  • Time: 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM
  • Place: 45500 Lighthouse Road
       (in the Fog Signal Building at the lighthouse)

    Laura Yale presents an overview of our local seal populations. As a complement to the elephant seal presentation by Nik Epanchin last November, Laura will expand your body of knowledge on these pinnipeds and their relatives.

    Laura Yale has been in the Harbor Seal Docent Program for 16 years as a docent, and has also been a volunteer for The Marine Mammal Center through Anchor Bay Operations for many of those years.  Laura took over the coordination of the seal program this year, after founder Sandy Bush left the area in 2013. Please join us for updates on the program and for an overview of seal populations along our coast.
