Scheduled Beach Explorations
Our new year of explorations is here, and we have set the schedule for the best low-tide times to be out on our Bainbridge Island beaches. As interesting as our night-time explorations are, it is sweet to enjoy a warm spring or summer day discovering what is new in our nearshore waters.
SUMMER 2014 SCHEDULE
Sunday, July 13, 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. -- Point White Pier beach. Please consider carpooling, as parking is limited at this little park. This is a joint event with IslandWood.
Sunday, August 10, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon -- Fay Bainbridge Park beach
For more information about these explorations, sign up to receive a Bainbridge Beach Explorer newsletter through the Sustainable Bainbridge home page, upper right corner -- check the box for "beach explorer" after entering your email address. We send out a newsletter prior to each event, and when there is a special opportunity for beach explorers.
NOTE: You may have read the news about the sea star wasting disease. It has come to Bainbridge Island; we have found die-off of sea stars at several of the beaches we monitor. Stars affected on our beaches are sunflower, ochre, mottled and leather stars. Giant pink stars have disappeared from places where we usually see them. Bainbridge Beach Naturalists are monitoring the situation in cooperation with scientists who are tracking the disease in our Salish Sea.
