Tillicum Beach on southeast Camano has been added to the 11 beaches the Camano Sound Water Stewards usually monitor. You can see Kayak Point on the mainland from this pebbly beach. Tillicum replaces Sunny Shores in the Camano Island monitoring line up.
This area had been in the thoughts of the volunteers for several years and when members, Elaine Chan and Cynthia Diaboch who live on Tillicum Beach, volunteered to be co-captains, it was a perfect fit. They enlisted help from Pete Domoto and Dave Brubaker, both experienced intertidal monitors, and it was added to the list.
The first monitoring took place on August 2016 and we celebrated with an oyster BBQ! Cynthia was the host and Pete was the BBQ chef. We look forward to more monitoring and good food in 2017.
