Scheduled Beach Explorations
The gradually lengthening days bring daytime low tides and beach explorations. For many this is a much easier and more accessible activity than winter night-time explorations. Parking can be limited at many of our beaches, so please carpool when you can. Wear warm clothing in layers so you can stay as comfortable as possible. Extra socks in your Wellington-type boots can help keep your feet warmer, as the water never really warms up. Please do not bring dogs on the beach explorations. And some of the beaches have slippery rocks and seaweed, so a trekking pole can provide a helpful assist for balance.
