As we gear up for our Cedar River Salmon journey this fall, we are taking a look back at some of the highlights of our 2018 Beach Naturalist season. It was another great one that went by much too quickly!
Take a walk north of the Seattle Aquarium along the waterfront. There is something you should know about this little beach right in downtown Seattle - it is alive with wonderful neighbors that breathe water instead of air!
Did you get out and explore our beaches this past week during some of the lowest tides we will have this summer? Our naturalists were out every day, mingling with our intertidal neighbors and helping our visitors see and learn about even the tiniest of creatures!
Did you make it out to the last series of minus tides on our local beaches? If not, don’t despair! We have another set of some of the lowest tides of the summer coming up July 21–25. I had the great pleasure of working during the past two low tides at several beaches: Lincoln, South Alki and Seahurst.
When the sun sets at 4:30pm in the winter, you are more than likely to find me at home and in my PJs by 7pm. Like many of you, I go into winter hibernation mode at this time of year. There is one thing though that gets me motivated enough to layer up and head out on a cold, winter’s night—and that is a good, minus tide.
