Join IslandWood educators and certified beach naturalists as we identify sea stars, nudibranchs, sea cucumbers, urchins, marine worms and more! Participants will get a close-up look at critters brought back from the briney deep by volunteer divers and placed gently into kiddie swimming pools. We'll have some of our favorite marine life field guides to enhance identification. Beach naturalists will model respectful techniques for interacting with wildlife as we practice being responsible beach stewards while enjoying our investigations and outdoor fun alongside Rich Passage (part of the Puget Sound).
