Citizen Science: Intertidal Surveys

A group walks in the intertidal zone at low tide with buckets and nets.
Join us for weekly surveys of the intertidal zone to learn more about all the species that live in this rich environment.

To better understand the biodiversity in the park, we are starting an all-taxa inventory, that is, we will catalogue every kind of plant and animal we can find. As part of that effort, we will conduct weekly intertidal surveys to assess the different juvenile fish that call our estuary and eelgrass beds home. Through the intertidal zone, we beach seine to count and identify tiny juvenile fish that may include salmon, sculpins, and many more.
