Loading Map....

Date(s) - 14 Dec 2012
8:30 PM - 10:30 PM

Environmental Science Center @ Seahurst Park

The Environmental Science Center (ESC) would like to invite the public to join us for this free ONCE A YEAR event at the Environmental Science Center at SeahurstPark.  An After-Hours Beach Walk will take place Friday, December 14th, 2012 from 8:30 pm to 10:30 pm.

An especially low tide combined with the protective darkness of night will give you the opportunity to see marine animals in a new light- your FLASHLIGHT!  Naturalists will be taking groups from the Environmental Science Center down to the beach to guide the experience and identify discoveries.  Inside the center, you can learn more about marine life at the microscope station or join a game of marine bingo.  Warm up with cider and cookies while socializing with fellow Puget Sound enthusiasts.

A few friendly pointers and reminders:

  • Dress warmly
  • Wear rubber boots
  • Bring a flashlight
  • Do No Harm
    • Touch animals gently with a wet finger
    • Watch where you step
    • Leave rocks bigger than your fist where they are (don’t flip over)
  • Leave ALL animals and shells where you find them (don’t take them home)
  • Share what you learn with others

To attend this free event, please RSVP to Jennifer Dumlao, Outreach Manager, Outreach@EnvScienceCenter.org, or by phone at 206-248-4266.

Our center is at Seahurst Park: 2220 SW Seahurst Park Rd, Burien.  Park in the lower or upper lots.  To get to the center, walk along the trail that runs north from the turning circle and bathrooms at the lower parking lot until you reach the first building.
