Learn about moon snails, sea stars, anemones and other marine life by joining a Seattle Aquarium beach naturalist at one of several meet-ups planned at beaches around Seattle this summer (look for people wearing red baseball caps at designated times at Carkeek, Golden Gardens, Olympic Sculpture and other parks). Beach Naturalist Program hosted 5/25–7/23. Times and locations vary. Free. seattleaquarium.org/beach-naturalist
There are 93 days between the summer solstice and the autumnal equinox—that’s 93 official days of summer. But as experienced Seattleites, we know that number doesn’t translate to 93 days of sun (we’d be thrilled just to break last year’s record of 48 clear days in a row). That’s why our summer guide offers ways to make the most of every summer day—rain or shine.
