Activities Slated for Crab Cove, USS Hornet

For those looking for reason to enjoy the early sprint weather on the Island, the Crab Cove Visitors Center is inviting residents to participate in a Low-Tide Critter Bingo from 2 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 3, and Sunday, March 4.

Park rangers say the spring tides mean critters usually hidden underwater are now more visible. Call 510-544-3187 for more details. Crab Cove will host events focusing on sharks from 2 to 3 p.m. on March 10 and 11.

Over at the USS Hornet, new volunteer training is set for 9:30-11:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 3.

Residents interested in helping with security, tours, events, aircraft restoration or administrative assistance should sign up for the event by calling 510-521-8448, ext. 24, or send e-mail to Volunteers@uss-hornet.org.
