Night beach walk in Bremerton tonight
November 23, 2011 · Updated 11:55 AM
A night beach walk in Bremerton is planned for tonight and organized by People for Puget Sound. The walk will be from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Lions Park for the community.
Some of the lowest tides of the year occur during the nighttime through the winter, which is why the outing is planned for night. People are able to explore the beach and on-hand naturalists will help explorers spot creatures and plants.
"It's really exploration," said Ann Butler, People for Puget Sound's beach watcher and shoreline educator. "The nighttime is kind of fun with the flashlights."
Butler said there is no registration necessary and the activity is appropriate for children with parents in tow.
People are asked to bring their own boots and a good flashlight. The organized beach walks at low tide are scheduled every year and the dates depend on the tide. Butler said typically in the summer months, the series occur during the day because that is when the tide is low then.
There are other nighttime beach walks scheduled including on Dec. 22 at the Bainbridge Island ferry dock beach and on Jan. 19 at the beach walk at Kingston.
