Humpback Whale Sightings Migrating humpback whales have been active outside the museum this week off of Seabright Beach. Our education staff had a great time pulling out our spotting scopes to get a closer look. Next time you’re at the Museum or anywhere near the coast, keep an eye on the water. Even if you don’t see a whale, there are plenty of dolphins, sea lions, and otters to spot along our coast.
Education Open House Local formal and informal educators got a chance to explore all of the Museum’s educational resources yesterday. From tours to kits to specimens, we have a lot to offer! Amity Sandage from the CA Regional Environmental Education Community (CREEC) was one of many people on hand to partake in the sharing of resources. Suzanne Hebert from the Seymour Center showed off the Seashell Science kit, a joint effort of the Museum and the Seymour Center. To learn more about our education resources, please visit our website.
The museum store is a great destination for readers of all ages! This weekend we’re highlighting our great selection of books for school age kids. Explore jungles, become an expert bird watcher and learn about Humphry the wayward humpback whale.
Book your spot early for the Historic Walking Tour on November 12. Join historian Norman Poitevin for a walk around town as he describes how our coastal lagoons have changed over time.
