If you haven’t gone tidepooling with the kids this summer, this is really last call!
It’s a minus 1.2 around noon-ish today, and while that isn’t as low as the really good ones we had earlier this summer, it’s plenty low enough to see some sand and sea creatures. Tomorrow, Friday, it’s almost a 1.0-again, not great, but enough if you hit a good beach, like Titlow.
After that, I really don’t see any lows for the rest of the summer, or at least August.
If you’d like to go to a FREE organized event, there is one at Owen Beach today by Pt.Defiance at 10:45, and there are two choices for Gig Harbor area friends with Harbor Wild Watch-either Kopachuck or the Purdy Spit. There is one for Olympia area friends at Burfoot FRIDAY from 12-3. Volunteer naturalists will be on hand to talk about what you find. All these events are free, though you will need a Discover WA pas for state parks.
This is also an easy adventure to do yourself! Just check the tidepools and find a beach! We have a post here that tells you how to do all that!
