Are our seastars recovering from sea star wasting syndrome? Read the (Everett) Herald's article featuring the Camano Island State Park survey team.
Our annual Beach Art Fest isn't your typical sand castle contest - there was no sand and no contest. We used only inanimate objects found on the beach to sculpt temporary works of art.
This year the artists began working on their creations at 11:00 AM then at 11:57 AM we watched the tide begin to roll in and wipe the canvas clean.
The Herald (of Everett) did a really nice article on our little store :)
I just checked Stardate.org and the weather for Saturday evening ... it'll be nice and warm for the 7 PM Camano Island SP amphitheater program (where you and Dad can learn how to Geocache), then the stargazing party at Cama Beach SP at 9:30 PM should be great. My SkyGuide app says the quarter-moon, Jupiter, and Venus will form a beautiful, tight triangle in the western sky.
Grab Dad and your Discover Pass and head over to the State Parks!
YIKES. Front page article on massive (northern California to Neah Bay) toxic algae boom. Warm water is the culprit. All shellfish harvest (including crab) on the outer coast has been shut down. Will this reach in to Puget Sound?
The new Washington Sport Fishing Rules (that go into effect on July 1) have just been published. Check them out to make sure you are up to date on all the regs.
For the third year in a row, SUBWAY restaurants are partnering with Washington State Parks for “Walk in the Park”.
“Walk in the Park” begins on June 13 which is “National Get Outdoors Day”, and continues through September 30. Anyone who shows a Discover Pass at a participating SUBWAY in Washington receives a voucher good for a free six-inch sandwich with the purchase of a six-inch sandwich of equal or greater price and a 30-oz. drink. Vouchers also are available at parks.
“The partnership with Washington State Parks and the Walk in the Park program both encourage families to spend more time in the outdoors and promote healthier, more active lifestyles,” said David Jones, SUBWAY Advertising Board Chairman. “Our goal is to educate our state’s children on the importance of staying active and inform families of the diverse outdoor activities that are readily available in the state of Washington. Getting outside and enjoying the great outdoors together is a great way to stay healthy, which is why we decided to implement the Walk in the Park program for the third year now.”
National Get Outdoors Day is an annual event to encourage healthy, active outdoor fun. One of the primary goals of the day is to encourage new guests to visit public lands and reconnect youth to the great outdoors.
