Description

The early spring seas wash a diversity of seashells upon the shore. Join a park ranger at the Wilderness Visitor Center to learn about these delicate and beautiful structures, and the marine animals that once lived inside of them. Then, weather permitting, take a beach combing stroll along the shore in search of these natural marine treasures. Dress for the outdoors and for walking on sand.
