Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered via the Seattle Aquarium to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines.

Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more.

"The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it's a wonderful, infectious thing!" beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. 
"To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing."
