IslandWood has Critter Dive on Sunday

Join IslandWood educators and certified beach naturalists for a beach exploration and hunt for sea stars, sea cucumbers, urchins, marine worms and more from 10 a.m. to noon Sunday, Feb. 16.

Get a close-up look at critters brought back from the briney deep by volunteer divers, with help from marine life field guides to enhance identification.

Beach naturalists will model respectful techniques for interacting with beach wildlife during the outdoor fun alongside Rich Passage at Fort Ward Park.
