Life in a Tide Pool
Saturday, June 8
10 – 11:30 a.m.
(Program held at Ash Creek in Fairfield*)
Come down to Ash Creek in Fairfield to get a glimpse into the daily interactions of marine life. As the tide recedes, isolated pools of seawater collect in low spots and form tide pools. The pools serve as temporary shelters for creatures stranded when the tide goes out, and more permanent homes for species adapted to survive the stresses of changing tides, waves, salinity, temperature, and oxygen.
Be prepared to get wet and muddy as you explore the shore. Bring sunscreen, closed-toe water shoes, net and bug spray.
*The program will be held at the Town of Fairfield Ash Creek Open Space, located at the end of Turney road, near South Benson Marina. A Fairfield beach permit is NOT required to enter the open space area. Please inform the guard at the Marina entrance that you are attending the program and they will direct you to the Open Space and parking area.
