This beautifully illustrated guide aids in identifying the most common intertidal animals and plants of British Columbia, Washington and Oregon.

What's that purple stuff you always see at the edge of the water when you land your kayak on the beach? Is it okay to touch those gooey little creatures you always find in tidepools? And where's the best place along the coast to see bat stars? This book can tell you.

The 274 most common animals and plants to be seen along the saltwater shores of the Pacific Northwest are described here — the ones that stay put and that cover great distances; the ones that hide and that love a party; the ones that look like rocks or feathers or blobs of jelly. Illustrating each entry is a full-color photo of the species in its natural habitat, so that even the novice can identify it confidently — without disturbing it.

There are special sections on great Pacific Northwest viewing sites for intertidal life, ways to understand tides and choose the best times to look for beach wildlife, intertidal habitats ranging from sandy beaches to aging wharves to rocky, wave-swept shores, and ecologically friendly observation methods.

Packed with expert information but wonderfully accessible, this informative guide was written to be both accurate and easy to understand. Details for each plant or animal include: description, habitat, range, additional notes and more.
