07/30/2010: "BLM Programs On SJI"
The Bureau of Land Management will be hosting several interpretive talks every weekend at Cattle Point from July-September.
Raena Parsons, recent graduate in Outdoor Recreation from Eastern Washington University, will be giving multiple programs Saturday and Sunday mornings from July 17-September 26. All programs meet at the Department of Natural Resources Interpretive Center. From Friday Harbor take Cattle Point Road past the lighthouse to the interpretive center parking lot.
The program schedule consists of four hour-long programs, the first beginning at 9 am. At 9 am, Parson leads a low tide walk, which involves a short but steep walk down to the beach. At 10 am, Parsons gives a lecture about the maritime history of Cattle Point. At 11 am, she discusses the varying marine life of the Puget Sound. At 12 pm, she introduces Leave No Trace principles and environmental responsibility for those recreating at Cattle Point.

All walks are free and open to the public.
