Explore Ft. Getty beach with URI marine scientists

Join University of Rhode Island Marine Outreach Scientists on a summer day at low tide for a twohour beachcombing expedition. Explore Fort Getty, one of Rhode Island's unique coastal beaches in this program, which gives children a special chance to have their questions answered about the plants, animals, and minerals found on the beach.

The two dates for beachcombing are Saturday, July 19, from 2 to 4 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 16, from 1 to 3 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public.

Pre-registration is required. To register, call the Office of Marine Programs at 874-6211. Groups meet at the Fort Getty beach pavilion and all children must be accompanied by an adult.
