Fit & Fun

You can take advantage of very low tides this holiday weekend by getting a naturalist’s view of a largely unseen world. What can you find? Anemones, moon snails, clams and another slimy surprise or two.

Volunteer naturalists will be wandering the beaches, teaching folks about the life-forms that make their home between the tides and about the challenges the animals face.

The events will be held at a number of area beaches, from Carkeek Park to Lincoln Park, from Des Moines Beach Park to Seahurst — just to name a few. No reservations are required.

This week, save 90% on digital access.

The naturalists will be available for about three hours starting at 10 a.m. Saturday; 10:30 a.m. on Sunday; and 11 a.m. on Monday. For more complete information, including directions, go to
