Look Beyond the Clue Ball

February 18, 2023 @ 12:00 am 2:00 pm

While I’m here, what else can I see?

Look closely at live barnacles feeding. View everyday objects you might see on the trails under a microscope. Bring your own found objects from home.

Plus, fun nature crafts for all ages and a scavenger hunt. You can even make binoculars for seeing more of nature. Sound Water Stewards are offering free family-friendly activities in the Forest Room at Cama Beach State Park as part of Glass Quest.

Be a Kind Quester by walking gently on the trails when looking for clue balls in the park. Get your Kind Quester form stamped by SWS for the Glass Quest drawing. 

As part of the Great Northwest Glass Quest, Sound Water Stewards encourage clue-ball questers to stop, look, listen to nature and enjoy the place they are. We have tools and activities for seeing more and looking closer.

  • small aquarium with live barnacles from a nearby beach – watch through a microscope as they eat with their feet
  • other microscopic discoveries — look closer at everyday objects from your home or that you might see on a trail
  • fun nature crafts for all ages
  • scavenger hunt
  • Kind Quester form – we’ll stamp it for you on 2/18 at Cama Beach
