Pull on your gum boots and come out with the Museum to explore the fascinating world of the intertidal zone at the Willow Point reef. Join the Museum at Campbell River and biologist Sandra Milligan for this family-friendly afternoon of exploration. The walk will look closely at dozens of animals and algae, from crabs and chitons, to gastropods and nudibranchs. Put your observational skills to work to find all sorts of beautiful and unusual creatures, and learn about the amazing strategies that have developed to live in this challenging environment.
