The Get Your Feet Wet program introduces children and adults to the plants and animals that inhabit the near shore environment of Puget Sound. Led by experienced naturalists and trained volunteers, visitors have the opportunity to see, touch and ask questions about algae and marine invertebrates through live touch-tanks and guided beach walks through the intertidal habitat. The goal of this interactive program is to bring awareness and respect for the species that share our home and encourage stewardship for our natural resources.
We schedule interpretive programs on our local beaches on most low-tide days from June-August. You can also find us at local parks, docks and community events. Locate us by looking for the blue canopy on the beach, and our volunteers and naturalists dressed in blue shirts and hats.
Check our calendar to see when you and your family will be able to visit us on the beach. Contact our Program Coordinator, Rachel Easton, at 253-514-0187 for more information.
