Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
May 29 all-day

(Note:  Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

Genesee tree walk @ starts at Ercolini Park
Jun 2 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

The office of ‘Trees for Seattle,’ a division of the Seattle Department of Public Utilities, is sponsoring a walk led by a trained volunteer to identify many of the interesting, common and rare trees in the Genesee neighborhood of West Seattle. The walk will take place on Saturday, June 2nd, from 9:30 to 12:00 noon. The walk begins at Ercolini Park at 48th Ave and Alaska St. We will take a leisurely walk down the tree-lined streets telling stories about different species of trees and pointing easy ways by which they can be identified. After winding around several blocks, the walk ends at the junction of Charlestown St and 48th Ave.

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails guided hikes
Jul 7 @ 10:00 am

More info to come about June and beyond – save the dates!

Saturday, May 5 is the first of a series of hikes on the first Saturdays of each month, guided by members of the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails Group, each with a theme. Steve Richmond, an ecological restoration practitioner and owner of Garden Cycles, will lead a Nature Walk focusing on plant identification. Walkers will view recent “gap-thinning” and re-planting in the greenbelt. The three-mile walk will be slower than hiking, stopping for notable plants. It will begin at 10 a.m. at the 14th Ave. SW and SW Holly St. trailhead and loop back through the Chinese Garden at South Seattle College. For more information, see wdgtrails.wordpress.com.

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jul 28 all-day

(Note:  Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails guided hikes
Aug 4 @ 10:00 am

More info to come about June and beyond – save the dates!

Saturday, May 5 is the first of a series of hikes on the first Saturdays of each month, guided by members of the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails Group, each with a theme. Steve Richmond, an ecological restoration practitioner and owner of Garden Cycles, will lead a Nature Walk focusing on plant identification. Walkers will view recent “gap-thinning” and re-planting in the greenbelt. The three-mile walk will be slower than hiking, stopping for notable plants. It will begin at 10 a.m. at the 14th Ave. SW and SW Holly St. trailhead and loop back through the Chinese Garden at South Seattle College. For more information, see wdgtrails.wordpress.com.
