LOW TIDE EXPLORATION – Chloe Stranzl, 12, looks at a molted crab shell during Sitka Sound Science Center's guided tide pool walk this morning. The center's outreach manager Sandy McClung, at left, led the informative walk along the shore near Sitka National Historical Park. On August 3 from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. the park will host biologists from SSSC and the public for a BioBlitz. Experts will guide members of the public to find, photograph, and identify intertidal life in the project funded by NPS. The observations will inform the park’s all-taxa inventory of species.
