The Christmas Anemone is aptly named! These beautiful green and red anemones are also called a dahlia anemone because the many tentacles resemble flower petals. Of course, during #lowtide these #anemones pull their #tentacles in until the water returns. Their scientific name is Urticinca crassicornis. You can see these beautiful specimens at the base of the Fox Island Bridge. #salishsea #foxisland #pugetsound #inaturalist ... See MoreSee Less

This past spring colleagues from around the US toured the Lummi Nation shellfish hatchery on Lummi Bay after our Pacific Rim shellfish sanitation conference. The hatchery staff were very welcoming and informative. Many participants had never seen a shellfish hatchery and were intrigued with the entire process. Of course, the gregarious geoduck stole the show at the end. Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission Lummi Communications Northwest Indian College Washington Sea Grant ... See MoreSee Less

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) concepts are abundant in the environment and will be explored daily as a way of thinking, approaching problems, experimenting, and finding solutions. Campers will be encouraged to stretch their brains and be able to meet the needs of these challenging professional fields. Harbor WildWatch will lend their scientific expertise to help everyone Learn and Have Fun!

#purpleshorecrab are usually purple, this is a rare green morph. You can tell it apart from a #greenshorecrab by the spots on the pincers and the lack of hairs on the legs. Use extreme care when flipping rocks to find these animals, they have a tough shell, but are easily crushed when returning rocks. Please be a good guest and only flip rocks that are the size of your head. That way you can return them by lifting them, rather than rolling. #themoreyouknow #salishseasecrets #pugetsound #crab #πŸ¦€ ... See MoreSee Less
