Ocean and wildlife educators are making a splash at the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach. Club members recently enjoyed a hands-on lesson about the ocean’s creatures in a “visiting classroom” presentation by the Ocean Institute of Dana Point, sponsored by its “Adopt-a-Class” program and the Hearts of Montage. Club pre-schoolers took a field trip to the institute, where they explored the depths of the sea. After story time in the classroom with Eric Carle’s “A House for Hermit Crab,” the children got to observe and touch creatures in a mobile aquarium and compare and contrast them with those illustrated in the book.

Emerald Bay residents were startled by the appearance of a 4-foot salmon shark, which apparently beached itself at about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. The shark was initially thought to be a great white, according to Cyndy Hutchinson, who came upon the baby shark while walking on the beach and took some photos of it. The shark may have been injured or stranded in the area, according to Hutchinson. "I saw a pink circle on its stomach, so maybe it got hit by a dolphin or was hurt on a rock," she said.
