FREE, Low-Tide Nighttime Beach Walk At Seahurst Park Tonight
There will be a FREE, low-tide, nighttime beach walk tonight (Fri., Feb. 26th) at Seahurst Park Beach from 7:30pm to 9pm.
These are always fun, adventurous family (or creative “date night”) outings, where residents can explore the unseen lifeforms that live all around us, yet are seldom seen.
Here’s a blurb from a flier:
Night Low-Tide Beach Walk
MOONLIT WAVES LAPPING THE SHORE
Imagine youâ€™re on the shoreline at a lovely low tide. Rocks that are covered all year lie exposed to view while the sea denizens remain happily cold and wet in the dark.
All around you, people waving flashlights are intently studying the amazing and abundant sea life as local naturalists help you discover the wonders of your Puget Sound shoreline.
Here are the details:

Join People For Puget Sound, the Burien Environmental Science Center and Seattle Aquarium in a night low-tide exploration.
Adventure with us out into the intertidal zone at our night time beach walk.
Trained naturalists will wow you with intertidal stories of nature-in-action as rocks that are normally covered with water are exposed.
Sea stars, barnacles & crabs of all sorts are just the beginning of what weâ€™ll see.
Bundle up – We adventure rain, sleet or cold so don your winter clothes, boots and a flashlight for best results.
Bonus â€“ weâ€™ll show you the best way to save the critters youâ€™ll see with direct action through our photo postcard campaign.Â Be sure to get your picture taken â€œstanding for clean waterâ€ before you head down to the beach.
Family-friendly; children must be accompanied by an adult.
BUNDLE UP AGAINST THE WEATHER AND BE SURE TO BRING:
- Bright flashlight with good batteries
- Wading boots (youâ€™ll be in ankle deep water)
- Warm hat & dry gloves
Free and family friendly!
