What a fun find by Holly, one of our volunteer naturalists, during our Belfair State Park Low Tide Beach Walk this afternoon! These are eggs from the Oregon hairy triton snail (Fusitron oregonensis). Related to the dogwinkle snail, this large snail has rounded whorls on its shell with a "hairy" or bristled appearance to it. They feed on a variety of marine invertebrates, including sea urchins, sea stars, chitons, bivalves, tunicates, and worms. They also happen to be the official state seashell of Oregon. If you missed this walk, we will be back out at Belfair in July! See our full schedule online. #learnhavefun #harborwildwatch #snail #seasnail ... See MoreSee Less

Warm weekends are here! Perfect for heading to the beach. Take precautions when harvesting shellfish on hot days. Follow the 3 C’s and always CHECK for closures before you dig, CHILL shellfish during and after the harvest, and COOK them thoroughly. Cooking oysters and other shellfish to 145°F internal temperature for at least 15 seconds kills Vibrio bacteria. Get tips on cooking, handling, and storing shellfish at www.doh.wa.gov/CommunityandEnvironment/Shellfish/RecreationalShellfish/IllnessPrevention/HandleSt.... ... See MoreSee Less
