There’s more to the West Side of San Juan Island than orcas! Dr. Erika Iyengar, of Muhlenberg College and long-time researcher at the Friday Harbor Laboratories, returns to lead her annual exploration of the intertidal zone at the Land Bank’s Deadman Bay Preserve.

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 preserve. 

This event is presented by San Juan County Land Bank and is free to the public.  For more information please contact Tanja at 360-378-4402 or
