Join the Friends of Netarts Bay WEBS staff and volunteers as they explore the fascinating world of tidepools along the edges of this part of the north Oregon coast. Discover the anemone clone wars, observe how sea stars feed, and learn about hermit crabs’ shell-swapping antics! From colorful seaweeds to elusive sculpin fish, there’s an incredible ecosystem waiting to be explored.

The theme for July 7th will focus on SEAWEED and is a compliment to its Seaweed Pressing Workshop. Learn more about this workshop at the link below.

They also host these events on July 22 at 8:00 a.m. and July 23 at 8:30 a.m.

Details: Wear boots or bring a change of shoes. DO NOT WEAR Flip flops (they are never ideal for exploring tide pools). Be prepared for Oregon coast weather.

“We understand everyone learns and experiences the outdoors differently and we are open to working with anyone that needs additional support,” WEBS said. “We have limited capacity. Please contact us in advance so we can do our best to accommodate your needs and/or find a way for you or your group to have fun participating in our events.”

Led by a consortium of volunteer community and non-profit organizations, these meaningful nature-based experiences highlight the unique beauty of Tillamook County and the work being done to preserve and conserve the area’s natural resources and natural resource-based economy.
