4th of July Low-Tide Walk

Saturday, July 4th
11:00 am - 12:30 pm 

Meet at the Natural History Exhibit at 11 am for a guided Low Tide Walk. Not only is tomorrow the 4th of July, but it's also a great low-tide (-2.12) perfect for a public low-tide walk!

If you'd like to join us and learn about the wondrous creatures beneath our waters, then come down to the Natural History Exhibit at Fort Worden at 11am on Saturday. Wear closed-toe shoes you'll be comfortable walking about a half-mile each way in on a gravel beach and dress for the weather. It should be a lot of fun!

Be sure to stop by the Marine Science Center at 2pm for the animal feeding in the Marine Exhibit to say goodbye to Inky, the Giant Pacific Octopus before her release back into her undersea world! She's had quite the stay here, growing larger and larger, eating lots of crabs, and helping PTMSC staff and volunteers educate our guests about the wonders of the Salish Sea.

PTMSC staff are preparing to release her very soon, crossing our fingers that she'll continue to grow, find a mate, and lay eggs that will introduce new little GPO's to the Salish Sea.

But wait! There's more!

Stick around for the first annual "Old School 4th of July!"

Fireworks are returning to Fort Worden this year and will make their official debut at 8:30 pm on Saturday. July 4th celebrations will be underway from 4pm-on at the Fort.
