Snails, Stars, and Sea Cucumbers: An Intertidal Walk
There’s more to the West Side of San Juan Island than orcas! Here’s a chance to seek out an amazing diversity of spineless animals (invertebrates) and learn how they feed, reproduce, and interact with each other. Dr. Erika Iyengar, of Muhlenberg College and long-time researcher at the Friday Harbor Laboratories, will lead our explorations. Wear some old sneakers or come prepared to get wet up to your knees. If you have a plastic magnifying glass, bring it! Kids welcome with adult supervision.
Meet and park at the Lime Kiln Point State Park main lot – Discovery Pass or parking fee required – and we will walk to the Land Bank’s Deadman Bay Preserve.
