Tasting the Tides

Tasting the Tides

2009 – 2015

At a special low-flow drinking fountain, visitors can taste the varied salt concentrations typical of water flowing from the Delta through the Bay to the Pacific Ocean. Learning how these salinity variations affect aquatic life from plankton to sharks, visitors gain an appreciation of the dynamic complexity of the San Francisco Bay Estuary.
