Kids page

Padilla Bay is a great place for kids to visit. We have aquariums, exhibits, trails, and a "hands-on" room just for kids. For songs, videos, coloring pages, and more about the estuary, email Susan Wood. Join the Salish Sea Kids to get emails about upcoming events and programs for kids.

Listen to the sound of photosynthesis in the eelgrass.

Sign up for classes designed for families with children

Every month we offer classes for kids on different estuary topics. Mini Explorers are 3- to 5-year olds. Junior Ecologists are 6- to 9-year olds. You can join the Salish Sea Kids to hear about kid's programs, or subscribe to our e-newsletter to hear about our all our upcoming classes.
