West Quoddy Head/Quoddy Narrows: Intertidal Discovery

Gayle Kraus

Search rocky, sandy and muddy intertidal environments for the invertebrates shorebirds eat! Dr. Gayle Kraus, Professor of Marine Ecology at University of Maine/Machias, and some of her students will help you learn about these "delicious" creatures.

Wear rubber boots and clothes appropriate for clambering though rock pools and muddy areas. Don’t forget sun and wind protection.

Note: If the weather is seriously rainy, this event may move indoors to the UMM Science building in Machias, 35 minutes away.

Meet by the picnic tables in the large parking lot at West Quoddy Head State Park. From the CCLC, turn left onto Rte 189 toward Lubec. Proceed for xx miles and turn right onto South Lubec Rd. Follow the road for xx miles to the Park. Turn right after entering the park and follow the driveway around to the parking and picnic table area. Restrooms are on your right as the driveway loops toward the parking lot and tables.
