SF Bay ACS Chapter 2016 Naturalist Training Program. Once trained, our naturalists will help other community members observe and interpret our local marine habitat. Naturalists will be able to represent SF Bay ACS in tours (both on land and water), in classroom visits, at festival exhibits, and at other events in the Bay Area.

Our naturalist program will give the community more opportunities to interact meaningfully with our local marine environment. It will help deepen our collective understanding of cetaceans. The program will strengthen our ability to include each other in creative conversation.
