Beachcombing for Families
Join University of Rhode Island Marine Outreach Scientists on a summer day at low tide for a two-hour beach investigation experience. We will be exploring the shoreline of Fort Getty, one of Rhode Island's unique coastal beaches. This program gives young people a special chance to have their questions answered about the plants, animals, and minerals found on the beach.
The dates for beachcombing are: Saturday July 21 from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. and Saturday, August 18 from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
These beachcombing events are free and open to the public.
Pre-registration IS required. To register, please call the Office of Marine Programs at 874-6211. More information will be sent to registered participants via email.
