Scheduled Beach Explorations
Summer low tides are quickly becoming a thing of the past. The days are slowly getting shorter. Soon our low tides will arrive in the darkness. Beach explorations under these conditions provide a different atmosphere than our summer excursions. Under cover of darkness, there is a different level of activity on the nearshore area.

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.
