In the world of oceans, the intertidal zone is one of the most perilous, diverse, and exciting habitats for seaside critters to dwell. The surf splashes against the rocks, the sun heats the exposed tide pools, and the abundance makes for an enticing shore-side snack for animal visitors of this “intertidal buffet.” Come along for an outing with SPES and the Vancouver Aquarium to learn about the diversity of life between the tides!

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
