The Seattle Aquarium Beach Naturalists are hosting two special nighttime low tide beach walks this Winter, and I thought it might be of interest to the Marine Biology club, or you might be interested in noting it on the blog.
As low tides shift later in the day during wintertime, intertidal critters are able to be more active and rare nocturnal organisms often make special appearances. These beach walks are a super fun and unique experience!
To those interested— these events are completely free, all you need to bring is your curiosity! And, of course, very warm clothing and preferably water-tight shoes. Headlamps are very useful, but not necessary. Tons of excited and knowledgable Beach Naturalists will be on the beach to help ID creatures, and answer questions, and explore the intertidal.
Saturday, December 2, 2017 from 8-10pm (-2.14 ft tide!)
Sunday, January 28, 2018 from 7-9pm (-1.65 ft tide)
