Join Us For A Beach Walk  Join us for a family-friendly exploration of the sea creatures that live at the beach!  Visiting the beach during low tide offers us a brief glimpse into the fascinating world of the intertidal zone. From barnacles to sea cucumbers, learn how these animals and dozens of others survive without water for up to six hours at a time! Hold a sea star, get squirted by a clam and learn how to tell female and male crabs apart in this unique discovery-based learning opportunity.  This program provides you with a hands-on opportunity to explore the intertidal zone by searching for live aquatic animals at the beach. Guided by an experienced, friendly and knowledgeable professional biologist, you will discover the diversity of animals and plants that inhabit the intertidal zone; a place that is often overlooked. You will also learn how best to respect these animals during future beach adventures.  NOTE: This program is conducted entirely outside. Please prepare yourself to dress appropriately for spending time outdoors and at the beach (e.g. hats, sunscreen, jackets, beach appropriate footwear etc). Our work near the shoreline may result in wet feet! Wearing water-resistant shoes or rubber boots is highly recommended!  THIS PROGRAM GOES RAIN OR SHINE.
