December’s New Moon brings with it excellent low tides, perfect for exploring the intertidal zone and its many fascinating creatures. Join Museum staff Liz Broughton and Marisa Gomez for guided exploration of this habitat as we collect specimens for our intertidal exhibit under our special scientific collecting permit.

  • Wear sturdy footwear that you don’t mind getting wet. Sneakers, knee-length rubber boots, and surf booties are all good options. No sandals, please! It may be windy and chilly, especially once the sun begins setting, so dress in layers and have a windproof outer layer.
  • Low tide is at 6:19 p.m. and sunset is at 4:53 p.m. Bring a headlamp or flashlight if you can.
  • We will bring resources to aid in your exploration and will be collecting specimens for our intertidal exhibit.
  • Please adhere to the latest local guidelines for COVID safety.
