Scheduled Beach Explorations

Nightime explorations have ended for this season, and we now await our spring and summer low tide opportunities.  

SPRING/SUMMER EXPLORATIONS 2019  

During the spring and summer months, the lowest tides occur in the daytime.  Bainbridge Beach Naturalists are holding the following beach explorations to which the public is invited.

May 19, Sunday, from 11:00 am to 12:30 noon.  This exploration will be held at the Rockaway Park Beach. Parking is very limited at this site, and it is important that cars are parked at an angle to the fence, rather than parallel to it, in order to accommodate the most vehicles.  

July 3, Wednesday, from 11:00 am to 12:30 noon.  Join us at the Bainbridge Island Ferry Terminal beach.  Parking is in Winslow, along Bjune or Brien Drive, with access via the footbridge across the ravine.  Cross Harborview Drive and follow the beach access path alongside the condos.

August 2, Friday, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm.  Point White Pier beach is the site of our last exploration of the summer.  There is a small parking lot across the road from the pier; please try to maximize the parking by tucking in closely to the neighboring cars.

Your guides for these explorations are trained beach naturalists, eager to help you learn about the amazing creatures in our nearshore habitat.  Boots suitable for wading are recommended, so you can get into the shallow water.  It can be cooler near the water than inland, so a removable warm layer is always a good idea.
