GTK Once Upon a Mattress

Winter Beach Walk at Sagg Main Beach
Saturday, February 8, 10:30 a.m.
Nobody is swimming or basking at the beach this time of year—that is, nobody except for the animals that live there. In the winter, animals like harbor seals and sea ducks come down from their northern summer homes to spend the season at local beaches. Brave the winter weather with the South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo) to see what kind of beach life can be found this time of year. Registration is required and costs $10 for adults and $8 for kids.
