Explore the Shore

kids touch a starfish in the tidepools

Explore the Shore beach walks are timed to take advantage of the low tides that reveal many of Puget Sound’s most interesting shoreline creatures. Discover a world that’s uncovered and covered with each tide. Walk Owen Beach in Point Defiance Park with our naturalists, who’ll help you spot and identify tidal animals like crabs, shellfish, anemones and more.

Meet on the beach near the parking lot and register at the event tent. Check-in begins at Owen Beach 15 minutes before the scheduled start time and ends 15 minutes after. Beach walks last 1.5 hours, though you may stay longer if you like.

Ages 5 and up. Free.
