Join us for a guided walk on the beach at low tide and learn how living things survive and thrive in the intertidal zone.

Meet at the Museum exhibit portico entrance in Fort Worden State Park for a guided Low Tide Walk on the beach with PTMSC naturalists. Explore tide pools and learn about how marine organisms are adapted for the challenges and daily extremes of living in the intertidal zone.

We recommend weather-appropriate clothing and shoes with good traction for moving around on wet slippery rocks. The beach is a .4 mile walk from the Museum; closer parking spots are available near the beach. 

$7 for adults and $5 for youth ages 6-17.
Includes admission to the Aquarium and Museum at Fort Worden.
Members are always free!
