Low tide Critter walk is today at Fort Ward

Spend your morning with moon snails, sea stars and sea shells galore at an extreme low tide Critter Walk at noon Tuesday, June 25 at Fort Ward Park.

Join IslandWood naturalists, Bainbridge Island Beach Naturalists and Kitsap Beach Watchers for a beach combing morning to remember Hunt for sea stars, sea cucumbers, urchins and marine worms with friendly beach naturalists as your guides. Participants will learn to use hand-lenses and colorful marine life field guides to enhance identification.

Beach naturalists will model respectful techniques for interacting with beach wildlife as they practice being responsible beach stewards while having fun in the sun. Bring your water bottles and sunscreen. No dogs please during the beach walk. The group will meet near the boat ramp.
