Low Tide Beach Walks with Harbor WildWatch & Tacoma Public Library – Titlow Beach

August 3, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Harbor WildWatch teams up with the Tacoma Public Library crew for some low tide beach walks. Their knowledgeable and friendly biologists and volunteer naturalists will guide you through a hands-on exploration of the intertidal zone, where you will discover the incredible diversity of marine life that calls our local waters home. During the program, you’ll learn good beach etiquette and get the chance to touch and examine creatures such as sea stars, crabs, and sea anemones, all while learning about their unique adaptations and behaviors. You’ll also hear about the challenges facing our ocean ecosystems and what you can do to help protect them.

This beach walk program is suitable for all ages and is perfect for families, school groups, or anyone with an interest in the natural world. Whether you’re a seasoned beachcomber or a first-time visitor, Harbor WildWatch’s beach walk program is sure to leave you with a newfound appreciation for the beauty and complexity of our local marine environment. Their programs run in all weather, so please dress appropriately. We recommend closed-toe shoes for safety, rain boots, water shoes, or an old pair of sneakers you don’t mind getting a little wet and muddy. Bring a water bottle, sunscreen, layers, and a snack if you think you will need it. Each beach walk will last approximately 60-90 minutes but you are welcome to peel off at any time before the beach walk concludes. Harbor WildWatch programs are always free, but a suggested donation of $2 per person or $5 family is appreciated.
