You’ll learn how to secure your crab pot in a way that doesn’t endanger other sea life, and find out why you need to be extra careful exploring the beach rocks at low tide.</p> <p>Local businesses have donated some fantastic raffle prizes – everything from food to kayaking to area attractions. Kids will enjoy lots of art activities, including the creation of marine-themed artwork from plastic bottle caps collected by our volunteers. There will also be a face painter and—weather permitting—a life-size inflatable orca on site!</p> <p>Make sure to stop by and learn from the experts about marine mammals of Washington – from tiny Harbor Seal pups to giant humpback whales.</p> <p>No need to register or book in advance, simply turn up and enjoy. PAWS Wildlife Center staff look forward to seeing you!</p> <p><a title="Click here to visit the official website for Seal Sitters" href="http://www.sealsitters.org/" target="_blank">Find out more about Seal Sitters.</a></p> <p> </p> Thu, 21 May 2015 10:52:52 -0500 http://www.paws.org/index.php/support/events/flipper-fest/?date=2015-05-31 PAWSwalk 2015 http://www.paws.org/index.php/support/events/pawswalk-2015/?date=2015-08-29 <p><strong><br></strong>Save the date and gather your friends and your fur-family members to join the best walk-in-the-park you'll do all summer!</p> <p>PAWSwalk raises year-round funding for all animals in need at PAWS.
