The Hunt for Sea Stars

An annual scientific study counting sea stars and other living creatures in Oregon tidal pools gets kids involved in science.

Do you even know what a Sea Star is? To us they looked a lot like a more colorful version of what we call starfish - a creature that lives on the bottom of our local waters and does, indeed, take the shape of a star. The ones this article from The NewStar in Lincoln Oregon are red versions of the same species. A program is held in the coastal tidal pools that gets people - especially kids - involved in scientific (and fun) studies. It's a really cool story and one worth reading.

Here are a few comments:

Local experts lead the hunt for sea stars during Lincoln City's Tide Pool Clinics, a fun and educational way to explore Lincoln City's rocky shores, according to the Lincoln City Visitor & Convention Bureau.

The bureau has partnerd with the Oregon Shores Conservation Coalition   (Coast Watch) to provide a fun opportunity for visitors to learn about intertidal marine life. Clinic leader Fawn Custer said she is excited to share her knowledge and expertise of marine conservation.
