Discover the intertidal zone

Discover the priceless tidal treasures of this amazing region

Discover the priceless tidal treasures of this amazing region.

Enjoy the beauty of intertidal life.

On Wednesday, May 18, from 12-2 p.m., the Museum at Campbell River will offer a guided walk along the intertidal seashore.  Biologist Sandra Milligan will lead a journey of discovery to the tip of the real Willow Point. The walk will look closely at all that “seaweed” and discover dozens of animals and algae, from crabs and chitons, to gastropods and gumboot chitons.

You’ll hone your observational skills to find the most elegant of intertidal life: the opalescent nudibranch and the flexible arm brittle stars. Once you know the names of your new friends, you’ll discover the amazing strategies they’ve developed to live in this challenging environment.

It will be a day to remember and an investment for future enjoyment of intertidal life. Dress for the weather, including rubber boots and a spirit for adventure.  Please note that the walk can be extremely slippery and wet. The cost for the Intertidal Walk is $10.

Call the Museum at 287-3103 to register.
