Pull on your gum boots and come out with the Museum to explore the fascinating world of the intertidal zone at the Willow Point reef.  Join the Museum at Campbell River and biologist Sandra Milligan for this family-friendly afternoon of exploration.  The walk will look closely at dozens of animals and algae, from crabs and chitons, to gastropods and nudibranchs.  Put your observational skills to work to find all sorts of beautiful and unusual creatures, and learn about the amazing strategies that have developed to live in this challenging environment.

Registration is at the Museum for the Intertidal Walk on July 21 from 10am to 11:30am.   Participants need to be able to walk about 1 km, some of which is in ankle-deep water and on uneven surfaces.  Meet at the parking lot on Highway 19A at Larwood Rd at the program start time.  Leave 5 minutes to park and walk; please respect the business parking at Larwood Plaza. To register, call the Museum at Campbell River at 250-287-3103.  The cost is a special family rate of $30.00 for a family of up to 4 (including grandparents, parents, caregivers, respite workers and kids).  Adults are $15.00, children $7.50.  Email Sandra.Milligan@nic.bc.ca with any questions. www.crmuseum.ca
