The Seattle Aquarium Beach Naturalists will be at Golden Gardens and Carkeek Park for the low tides expected this weekend.

“Grab your boots and get ready to learn all about the animals that call our local beaches ‘home,’” the website states. Beach Naturalists will be on hand Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Sunday from noon to 3:30 p.m. and Monday from noon to 3 p.m. “We are here to educate and inspire folks, in hopes that providing knowledge of the creatures and their habitat will lead us all to care more about their habitat and fight to preserve it,” says Beach Naturalist Coordinator Janice Mathisen. Although Beach Naturalists won’t be out on Friday, a low tide of -2.7 is expected at 11:45 a.m. (Disclosure: The Seattle Aquarium is a sponsor of MyBallard.)
