Seabrook Field Trip

August 20, 2009

We will be meeting at Seabrook, WA. The plan is to meet around 11 a.m. We will meet near the sales office (the big blue house near the cafe). After meeting we will go for a visit to the natural areas on the beach and hear a presentation about protection of natural areas and ecosystem services provided by the near-shore habitat along Washington’s Coast, and to have a picnic.

We will then tour Seabrook and look at a construction project.

More information about Seabrook can be found at this website:

Those carpooling from Evergreen will meet in C Lot at 8:45 with a 9 a.m. departure.
