Beachcombing For Families

Join URI Marine Outreach Scientists on a summer day at low tide for a two-hour beach investigation experience. We will explore one of Rhode Island's unique coastal beaches. This program gives young people an opportunity to have their questions answered about the plants, animals, and minerals found on the beach. 

2016 Beachcombing for Families will be held:

  • Sunday, July 17 from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM
  • Sunday, August 14 from 10:30 AM  to 12:30 PM

These beachcombing events are free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required. To register, please call the Office of Marine Programs at 401-874-6211.  More information will be sent to registered participants via e-mail. People who are not pre-registered may be charged by the town of Jamestown to enter Fort Getty.

This program is for families.  All children MUST be accompanied by an adult.
