Explore the beautiful, bizarre world of intertidal creatures of our shoreline by observing them up close. MLSS divers will collect them from the ocean and place them into tanks for your observation while interpreters tell us about the lives of these animals. We never know what the divers will nd, there are always some wonderful surprises!

The beach tanks will be ready for observation at 1:00. Learn more about the Intertidal Zone at information tables featuring regional conservation and research groups.

This event is organized in cooperation with Parks Canada Day with many events in the park, including free ice cream, Orca News, FAB heritage displays and, always the chance of seeing whales.
