Beach Monitoring- Fox Island Sand Spit

January 9 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Winter is coming. Break out the foul weather gear, put new batteries in your head lamp, and join Harbor WildWatch for an exciting night of citizen science at the beach! During the winter monitoring months, it just so happens that the lowest tides are during the dark of the night which adds an adventurous twist to our monitoring procedures. Hence, the need for a headlamp. Winter Beach Monitoring is also a great excuse to visit your favorite beaches at night when parks are normally closed. Having extra assistance during these nighttime events makes an incredible difference in our ability to collect information about the organisms living on the beach. Remember, you don’t have to have a science background to participate, nor are you required to stay for the entire duration of the typically 3 hour program. Mark your calendar for any or all of these upcoming events and come do some science with Stena and Mike Behrens!

Because this event is a mix of only the best conditions, COLD, DARK, and WET, here is a list of items to think about having with you: Headlamp, rain coat, rain pants, rain boots, fleece or wool layers, toe warmers, hand warmers, neck gator, hat, gloves, thermos of warm beverage, adventurous attitude!

DeMolay Nature Preserve/Fox Island Sand Spit/Bella Bella Beach: This is a beach with many names. Meet at the gate at the end of Bella Bella Drive at 8pm. There is additional parking in a lot up the hill and to the right. If you arrive late, walk down the driveway to the beach, the monitoring location is to your left.

Contact Stena@harborwildwatch.org for information prior to the event.
