Oceanside Tidepool Discovery Day

What amazing creatures are lurking at the water’s edge? Come out to Oceanside and see!

Oregon State Parks, Friends of Netarts Bay WEBS staff and volunteers will be onsite in the tide pools helping visitors understand what is living along the coastal edge. Learn about anemone clone wars, how a sea star eats, or how hermit crabs steal shell homes from other crabs! From seaweeds to sculpin fish, there is an other worldly place to discover. Come out and enjoy!

Look for Oregon State Parks rangers or volunteers in WEBS t-shirts and let us guide you through the tide pools.

Details: State Parks will meet anyone interested in a full guided walk at the public parking area for the Oceanside Recreation Area at the listed start time. If you are unable to make the first meet up time, feel free to join anytime during the event. Just find the rangers or WEBS volunteers out on the beach and they will give you an intro to tidepool life. Wear boots or bring a change of shoes. Flip flops are never ideal for exploring tide pools. Be prepared for Oregon coast weather.

Registration: Let us know you are coming by registering! We expect people to come and go, we have no limit on size at this time. We will help as many people as possible and lend resources for you to make your own discoveries.

We understand everyone learns and experiences the outdoors differently and we are open to working with anyone that needs additional support. We have limited capacity. Please contact us in advance so we can do our best to accommodate your needs and/or find a way for you or your group to have fun participating in our events.
