Members Only Penguin Party

September 13 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Waddle on over for this special members only after hours party! You’re invited to an exclusive sneak peek of how some of our penguin artwork is created. Watch as one of our African penguin ambassadors transforms plain white tiles from Get Fired Up! into unique and colorful masterpieces that will be used for this year’s Run/Walk for the Penguins race. Our penguin trainers will share why this fun activity is a great enrichment opportunity for our penguins and how this helps them to participate in their own healthcare.

Enjoy light snacks and fun music in the Main Gallery while you make a beaded bracelet just like those worn by every penguin in our colony! Each colored bead represents a different number, so make your bracelet represent a special date or just add a collection of your most favorite colors. Either way, you’ll become an honorary member of our penguin colony!

Be sure to stop by our Run/Walk for the Penguins table to learn more about our 11th annual race. Register as a runner or walker on the spot and find out how you can start fundraising for the event right away. Who knows, you could be one of the runners to win the awesome prizes made during the Members Only Penguin Party!

RSVP’s for Members Only Penguin Party are suggested, but not required. Please email [email protected] to learn more or to let us know you’ll be joining in the fun.

September Member Perk

Indulge in something sweet for the season! Now through the end of September, Mystic Aquarium members receive 10% off their entire purchase at Sticky Situations.

Located in Olde Mistick Village, Sticky Situations is committed to creating awareness around the declining honey bee populations. Sticky Situations works with family farms across the United States to provide pollination services, specifically for those crops that are reliant upon the honey bee for direct pollination.

Sticky Situations has an artisanal honey storefront and tasting room inside Olde Mistick Village, whereby you can learn about the different varietals of honey that the bees have made along with having the opportunity to sample and purchase all of your favorite varietals.

It’s partnerships and relationships like these, which further the overall education mission of Mystic Aquarium. We hope that you’ll take every advantage to learn more about what Sticky Situations is doing by sampling and purchasing their amazing raw honey.
