The Beach: Fall 2018


Regardless of the season or the weather there is always something to do at the beach.  As summer 2018 winds down, don't forget that beaches offer so much more than sand, sun and swimming.  Beaches are dynamic and complicated environments.  Most beaches change throughout the year and these changes provide the casual explorer the chance to discover an incredible diversity of life.

Even beaches in urban and stressed environments, where wildlife and natural settings are less abundant or less apparent, are worth exploring.  Especially for geological or historical reasons. 

A little reading will add more fun to your traditional beach activities the next time you visit.

The plants, animals, fungi, and bacteria that live on, under, and around the beach might just surprise you.
