Beach Naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to protect them. More than 100 Naturalists have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area beaches this summer.
Beach Naturalists know their beach. They can help you enjoy the beach without harming it. They can tell you what sea stars eat, why barnacles stand on their heads and how moon snails lay their eggs. Children are especially welcome!
