Beach Scavenger Hunt

Take a stroll on the beach with a Park Ranger to see what we can find.  We’ll be hunting for everything from drift beans to sea glass, and of course seashells.  Sunscreen and water are recommended.  Distance of the hike will depend on the weather and the group.  Meet at the Bathhouse.
