See what it’s like to live on the edge—of the intertidal zone, that is! Get to know some of the fascinating creatures that inhabit the magical places where land meets sea while chatting with our expert beach naturalists. Discover how to enjoy the beach without harming it, learn when the naturalists will be stationed on a shoreline near you, take in a squid dissection and sea urchin feeding—all with a drink in your hand! Plus enjoy an iconic Seattle sunset with our back-deck barbecue.
