Courses

Life at the Edge – of the Sea

1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

The edge of the ocean is a challenging place to live. Each living organism has to survive under salty water with crashing waves – and also under the baking sun with no water, twice each day! Participants will:

  • Explore amazing survival strategies of sea life creatures – large and small – that inhabit the intertidal zone.
  • Identify organisms and recognize major zones of life in the intertidal.
  • Gain an understanding of how the physical and chemical environment determines which organisms live where.
  • Design food chains and food pyramids for different intertidal types – rocky vs. sandy.

Visit the Poulsbo Marine Science Center to meet some fascinating creatures that make a living between the tides.

Instructor: Barbara Blackie
