All along the pristine coast of Central California, many species of delicious edible seaweeds exist. Kelp is some of the most tasty and nutritious of wild superfoods! I will meet participants and take them to seldom visited local spots and teach them basic phycology (marine algae science) and sustainable harvesting techniques. Not only will participants partake in a unique experience surrounded by breathtaking scenery, but they will leave with the knowledge of how to sustainably harvest nutritious seaweed for themselves for years to come.
I have been passionate about harvesting fresh food from the sea my whole life, specifically foraging and studying seaweed. I currently have an Edible Kelp Harvesting license from the State of California and sell my fresh product at farmer's markets. I've been the foreman of aquaculture facilities such as the Morro Bay Oyster Company and a licensed commercial salmon fisherman. My family heritage is Irish/British and harvesting fresh seaweed is in my heritage! l am passionate about sustainable harvest of local resources and feel that there is a lot of community potential in harvesting seaweed for fun and nutrition. I especially love passing down harvesting knowledge to my own children and the next generation of foragers.
Lunch: Bowls of ramen noodles made spectacular with fresh seaweed harvested by the participants themselves.

We will meet at Estero Bluffs State Park a few miles north of Cayucos, CA. From there we will travel to one of several large tidepool areas between Estero Bluffs and Ragged Point, near southern Big Sur. No matter what tide is present there will always be edible seaweed available for participants to enjoy. We also are usually lucky enough to see many marine mammals and creatures that inhabit the intertidal ecosystem.

We will be harvesting edible seaweed. Unlike land foraging, there are no toxic seaweeds to worry about. We will show you how to tide pool with minimal impact upon the marine environment.
