Tide pool research

Published May 20, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

Skagit Valley College student Jonathan Hallenbeck took advantage of good weather and extremely low tides Sunday afternoon to conduct field work for his studies in Applied Ecology. Assisting him with the Washington Park tide pool analysis was family friend Aaliyah Raabe. Hallenbeck is a 2000 graduate of Anacortes High School. He has also conducted analysis of tidelands at Larrabee State Park.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
