Event Details

For a brief time during minus tides the hidden mysteries of the reef are revealed. This is one of the best weekend minus tides of the year. We’ll see giant green anemones, ochre stars, purple sea urchins, and various species of crabs, and possibly mussel worms, bushy headed peanut worms, and brittle stars.  Herons, egrets, black oyster catchers, and other birds will be on hand for the low tide buffet spread. We will be going out on the reef in hopes of seeing the nudibranchs, the colorful sea slugs known as the butterflies of the sea.  With luck we will see several species.  Be prepared for a long walk, some of it on slippery seaweed covered rocks, and for getting wet feet! Also open to youth (age 10-17) with adult attendance.
