Learn About Low-Tide Exploration

May 7, 2023 @ 12:15 pm 1:15 pm

For Camano SWS only

Sound Water Stewards partner with Washington State Parks and Cama Beach State Park. Through this partnership, volunteers assist with low-tide beach walks to enlighten and educate visitors to Cama Beach State Park. This opportunity allows you to learn more about the intertidal creatures that live on our beach alongside park visitors and staff. These programs happen during the summer during exceptional low-tide days.

Join Ranger Meredith Peterson, SWS Class of 2023, for an example of a low-tide beach walk on Sunday, May 7, 2023, to see what to expect during these programs. While this program is not going to be advertised to the wider public, there will be signs out during the day advertising to visitors to the park on that day, so expect park visitors to join. The low tide is forecasted to be a –2.6-foot tide at 12:47 pm. This tide should allow us to enjoy parts of the beach and sand bars where we can find many different creatures.

Plan to be outdoors during this hour-long program, and wear shoes that can get wet to allow you to get into the shallow parts of the water (rain boots or water shoes are recommended; some people even wear waders).

Bring your EZ ID guides to help identify all the interesting creatures that we will find. Meet at opening in Sea Wall at the beach.
