Group visits

  • Group visits for children
  • Adult group visits include seniors, tour groups, ESL, civic groups and those with special needs. These groups usually enjoy a brief introduction to estuaries, watch a video,  Q/A session, and a tour of the exhibits. Please contact the Reserve to discuss your specific educational needs.
  • Teacher Resources

How to schedule a visit

  • Spring dates fill up quickly. We suggest contacting us in summer or early fall to schedule for the following spring.
  • If you would like to bring a group to tour the exhibits on your own, we ask that you call to schedule this. We want to avoid too many people in the exhibits at the same time.
  • A phone call to 360-428-1558 may be the easiest way to schedule your group and to get answers to your questions. You can also email Susan Wood at susan.wood@ecy.wa.gov.
