Beachcombing - Seashore Foraging Tips

If you live near the ocean, or plan to visit, you can find some worthwhile foraging along the shore. There are pretty things, useful things to make into tools, building supplies, and also things to eat. A stretch of sand, a cobblestone shore, a tidepool, or expanse of dunes can all reveal treasures brought in by the tides. Often the best beach scavenging can be found after a storm, although any time of low tide should do nicely.

Useful Things Beachcombers Can Find

Note - Be careful any time you are along the coast. There are poisonous and deadly creatures that can sting or bite the unwary. You can get trapped by the tide or caught in a current. Use some common sense when foraging - and as always - be careful not to scavenge an area to the point where no one else can use what is out there. Take only what you need, so others can also have the joy of exploration. Bring a bag along to pick up any trash you find (especially plastic) which kill thousands of sea animals every year.
