Program Description
Penrose Point State Park:  May 9, 10, 11, 2017

Join us for the Virtual Tide Pool Excursion event that introduces students to the plants and animals that inhabit the near shore environment of Puget Sound. Led by experienced naturalists, students have the opportunity to see and ask questions about algae and marine invertebrates through live touch-tanks and a virtual beach walk.

Visitors will learn about the anatomy, feeding habits and the amazing adaptations these creatures must possess in order to live in the harsh beach environment. 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.
