Wild wild estuary
Estuaries are places where rivers and streams meet the sea. Tidelands Park is where you should meet on April 12 to volunteer for the Morro Bay National Estuary Program’s State of the Bay Family Event. The event will raise awareness about wildlife in the estuary and will include hands-on activities like knot tying and making fish prints. Volunteers will help with traffic control, greeting vendors and participants, and ensuring the safety of the guests. To sign up as a volunteer, go to mbnep.org.
ARTWORK BY STEPHAN JUEL
Sculptor Stephan Juel of Dancing Dog Clayworks in Cambria believes that art can be both work and play, and that his best work stems from the latter. You can get in on the fun with a demonstration in clay led by Juel at the Atascadero Gospel Church, on April 14 at 7 p.m. Juel does both sculptural and functional pieces and often incorporates animals and letters into his work. Atascadero Gospel Church is located at 8205 Curbaril. For more info, call Charlene at 239-2642.
