Wilderness Emergency Medicine ECS | Our First Day

March 04, 2020

Our first day in California was filled with fun adventures and activities. We started by taking a ferry to go to Santa Cruz Island. While on the ferry, we were able to spot three gray whales and a couple of dolphins. Once at the island we went sea kayaking and we saw some starfish and harbor seals. We then hiked for 3 miles to the UC reserve field station. At this field station, we settled into the rooms we will be staying in for the next 10 days, put some burgers on the grill for dinner, started the beginning of our wilderness first responder course, and called it a night.
