Cama Beach State Park
Fri Jan 2 at 8:00 pm
After you park, walk down the road (past Cama Center) to the southern end of the beach. Park volunteers will be on hand to help you identify intertidal animals. The tide will be a -1.1 at 9:02 pm so you may see chitons, sea anemones, nudibranchs, crabs, seastars, moon snails, barnacles, and more. See what impact the Seastar Wasting Syndrome virus has had on our intertidal seastar populations.
Dress warmly, wear waterproof boots or sturdy shoes (walking on beach cobbles and rocks can be difficult). Bring one bright flashlight per person (also bring extra fresh batteries). These walks are very informal. You can head home at any time.
The weather forecast looks OK, but the walk may be cancelled if the weather turns foul. To check status, call 360.387.0846 after 5:00 pm on Jan 2.
