The family-friendly event features interactive displays to showcase what nature has to share along with the community science projects where Sound Water Stewards monitor for invasive species or collect scientific data. See live barnacles feeding underwater in an aquarium. Look at plankton under a microscope and watch them swim across the screen; see what is feeding on them. Did you know plankton generate 50% of the oxygen we breathe? Learn to catch more (dungeness or red rock) edible crab and how to differentiate the invasive and dangerous green crab from the native shore crab found under most rocks. Find out about bald eagles residing in the park. Learn about the bull kelp bed that is visible from the bluff and why it is a vital keystone species in the marine environment. See native plants and trees up close on a nature walk. Pick up a Scavenger Hunt form and go find the items. Find out what distinguishes the invasive Northern Giant Hornet from all the others. Learn about glaciation and creation of the bluffs and beaches. Discover picturesque trails. Participate in a Molt Search at 1:30 pm looking for molts of the invasive green crab (training provided that day). Youth receive a free magnifying glass to take a closer look and a Junior Steward booklet. Adults may select a crab measuring gauge and/or dog poop bags. Hosted by nature; sponsored by Sound Water Stewards for the community. Look for the feather flags and start at the picnic shelter near the boat launch.
