Family Tide Pooling
Tide pools are special places, home to an array of fascinating animals and seaweeds uniquely adapted to thrive between the tides—the rocky intertidal zone. Join us for guided tide pooling explorations as we search for crabs, sea stars, urchins and more! You’ll want to come prepared to get wet for this program! Close-toed water shoes or rain boots are best for navigating the slippery rocky shore.

Nature Journaling is a fun activity for all ages a great way for families to spend creative time together. In this session, we will first head outdoors to practice the art of observation and connect with our surroundings. Then, we will guide you through the process of journal building, and illustrating and writing about your findings. You will walk away with lots of ideas for nature journalling on your own. There is no experience necessary and all materials are provided.
