Description

Join us this April vacation for “Eco Splash” as we celebrate Earth Week. You will be amazed as tons of sand are transformed into a spectacular sculpture by Sandtasia, the Sand Sculptures of the Ocean State, throughout the week. Use your creativity to create a sculpture of your own using scrap materials (see below); meet and be enthralled by some very cool rehabilitated raptors. Make your own bird feeder and plant a seedling to take home and grow; find out what’s fun about composting and the benefits of the humble red wiggler! Eco Splash will have you checking your carbon footprint and inspiring you to find new ways to help protect our ocean planet.

Activities occur daily except Easter Sunday, April 16-19 and 21-22, 10:00am - 3:00pm and are free with Aquarium admission or membership. Conservation Club members – be sure to stop by the Club table and pick up your Earth Day patch!
