What’s The Point? is a free, family-friendly event featuring low tide beach tours, community booths, and more at Point Whitehorn Park!

Beach naturalists will be there to help you learn about tidal habitats and the critters who call this place home. We’ll hold scheduled talks to learn about different aspects of the area, and local partners will share more ways to get involved in protecting and exploring this area. Please leave your dogs at home!

We hold this day of beach fun each year during one of the extreme low tides around the summer solstice. This makes for some of the best beachcombing and wildlife sightings you can get.

Information on parking, accessibility and more coming soon.
