Exploring Clayton Beach, Sunday, May 7th
Clayton Beach in Larrabee State Park is one of the best places in Whatcom County to see tide pool life and other small marine creatures that live along the shoreline. After meeting at the South Lost Lake Trailhead parking area, we’ll follow the trail that descends through the woods to the beach, then make our way along the sandy shore, following the water’s edge. Whether it’s colorful anemones clinging to a rock or sand dollars burrowing in the mud, we’re sure to find some remarkable sea creatures. We’ll also pause for a discussion about issues facing marine life and how we can help.
When: Sunday, May 7th, 11:00am – 2:00pm*
Location: Meet at the Lost Lake Parking Lot (a 15-minute drive from WWU, also accessible by bike via the Interurban Trail).
What to bring: Lunch and a full water bottle. Sturdy shoes recommended.

*All end times are approximate. We will do our best to finish up by the time listed on this page, but there is always the possibility of things taking longer than expected and we recommend not making plans that depend on being back by exactly then. Some trips may also finish early.
Reconnect Earth would like to respectfully acknowledge that all our winter and spring trips take place on the traditional, sovereign territory of Indigenous peoples including the Lummi, Nooksack, Samish, Swinomish, and others. We challenge ourselves and others to seek out ways to help rectify past and present-day injustices against Indigenous peoples and work to dismantle systems that perpetuate colonialism.
