Dr. Erika Iyengar, of Muhlenberg College and long-time researcher at the Friday Harbor Laboratories, returns to help kick-off summer break on the Westside exploring the intertidal zone.

Spend the morning among an amazing diversity of spineless animals (invertebrates) and learn how they feed, reproduce, and interact with each other.

Wear some old sneakers or come prepared to get wet up to your knees. If you have a plastic magnifying glass, bring it! Kids welcome with adult supervision.

Meet and park at the Lime Kiln Point State Park main lot – Discover Pass or parking fee required – participants will walk to the Land Bank’s Deadman Bay Preserve.

Sunday, June 19, from 9:00 to 11:00 am at Deadman Bay Preserve, San Juan Island.
