From seaweeds to sculpin fish, the otherworldly inhabitants of tide pools will take center stage in Oceanside on Sunday, April 30, when Friends of Netarts Bay hosts a free outing to peer beneath the surface.
Staff and volunteers will be onsite in the tide pools helping visitors understand what is living along the coastal edge. Participants will learn about anemone clone wars, how a sea star eats, and how hermit crabs steal shell homes from other crabs.
The excursion will run from 9 am to 1 pm at the Oceanside Beach State Recreation Site, 10 miles east of Tillamook.
