Upcoming Tacoma Nature Center at Snake Lake Events

October 4

Pier Peer Around Tacoma

Saturday, October 4 (7:30pm - 9:00pm)

Bring your family and join us for an aquatic night-time adventure as you explore hundreds of mysterious life forms below the docks with experienced naturalists!

See and touch creatures brought up from the deep by local divers. Participate in a plankton tow.

After this exciting outdoor adventure, we'll go inside to warm up, drink hot cocoa and talk about what we saw. Dress for the weather - the docks can be wet - and bring your own flashlights. We provide life jackets as well as scoops to catch sea creatures.
