Pod Pop Up: Tacoma Tidepools!

Our Spring Pod Pod Up will be hosted down in Tacoma, and we’ll be joined by some partners at the WA State Department of Fish and Wildlife to explore the tidepools together! In this wildlife viewing opportunity, participants will have hands-on opportunities to learn about local marine ecology and meet some intertidal sea creatures.

This series is dedicated to creating and nurturing intergenerational connections to water. Pod Pop-Up days are open to BIPOC community members of all ages 12+. Please no children under age 12. BIPOC stands for Black, Indigenous, People of Color.
