Not able to stay away from a beach event, retired beach conservation ranger extraordinaire Sally Lider stopped by to greet the volunteers and talk with event coordinator Jennifer Leach before grabbing a bucket and joining the volunteers on the beach.

The low tide also exposed a wealth of intertidal invertebrates including crabs, a sea lemon, anemones, and sea stars.

These intrepid youngsters were part of a contingent of volunteers supporting former Seattle Port Commissioner Bill Bryant, who is running for governor. Bryant also joined the clean-up effort and was at a different beach location when these photos were shot.
