pier piling pivot

festival pavilion

This exhibit uses a geared motor to swing a specially designed piling on the Festival Pavilion out of the water so that visitors on the adjacent pier apron can examine it in detail. An accompanying legend identifies the intertidal zones on the piling and the species of plant and animal life occupying this unique shoreline environment.
