This week we go to to the beach with Field Trip Correspondent Laura Hautala and her Science Mom. Yes, we said Science Mom. And don’t worry, it’s not in the least bit relaxing, as we learn about why the otherwise lovely gigantic basalt structures at Ecola State Park in Oregon are actually the result of millions of years of violent geologic history and the scene of a daily Darwinian struggle played out at the speed of … well, starfish.
So gather your loved ones, slather on some sunscreen, and let’s go see what’s lurking on those mysterious rocks out beyond the shore.
(P.S. Stay tuned later this week for a photo field trip courtesy of Science Mom and Science Daughter.)
