Spring Collection- What did we find?

Although the rain continues to fall and temperatures remain quite chilly, going out and collecting animals for the Marine Exhibit is always a pleasant reminder that spring is here.
The search begins at North Beach

During the winter, the Marine Exhibit stays pretty quiet. Julia works, mostly alone, on various projects in a room full of empty tanks.  Read more here- April Showers Bring....Opening Day.
Spring always feels like the season for rebirth and new beginnings.  The exhibit begins to awake from its winter slumber and our tanks are suddenly alive and full of life again.

Get a sneak peak at our discoveries in the video below:


Collection isn't just about filling our tanks for the upcoming busy season.  It's an opportunity for us to dust off the boots, slow down, and take the time to explore and rediscover all the interesting plants, algae and animals living along our coast.
I encourage you to get out and do some exploring on your own, and for those of you who are local followers- come down and meet some of our new creatures face to face.
We are currently open Fri-Sun, 12-4 P.M.

Hope to see you soon!
Heather Jones
