“If you look into a tidepool and comprehend what you see, you are observing the universe”
N.J. Berril, 1951 (one of the fathers of marine biology in Canada).
Since 1980, biology and marine science classes from Pearson College have been been able to use the tidepools at Race Rocks as ideal locations for research on abiotic (physical) and biotic factors.
Photos were taken of some of the lab exercises on tidepools .
