People who join our kayak tours on Morro Bay are often awestruck by the beauty of the bay. Their appreciation deepens as we discuss the complexity and fragility of this amazing ecosystem and how the Morro Bay National Estuary Program is working to study, enhance, and improve the natural systems of the bay.”
