Fit & Fun

Yes, it sounds like a little work, but here’s a way to hit the beach, get some sun, exercise and help marine life while you’re at it.

Seal Sitters, along with co-sponsors Alki Community Council and Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation, will hold a cleanup of West Seattle’s Alki Beach on Saturday, from 9 a.m. to noon.

This year’s beach cleanup events will once again be in honor of seal pup Sandy, who was rescued from a West Seattle beach in August of 2011, rehabilitated at PAWS Wildlife Center and released back to the wild in January of 2012. Sandy was fitted with a tag to monitor her success in the wild and provide data to biologists about foraging patterns of rehabbed seals.

Sixty-six days later, Sandy was found dead, entangled in derelict fishing line off the Edmonds Pier.

Participants will assemble at Alki’s Statue of Liberty plaza (61st Avenue Southwest and Alki Avenue Southwest). RSVP at sealsitters@me.com so organizers can determine the amount of bags and equipment needed on hand.

Fit & Fun is a weekly notice about active recreational opportunities in the Greater Seattle area. To suggest a future item, contact Richard Seven: rseven@seattletimes.com
