Cape Cod Canal Cleanup and Earth Day Festival








April 21, 2012 - Krill, Patty and Carly

Today Krill, Patty and Carly had a great time manning two educational tables as well as two hands-on activities at the Cape Cod Canal Cleanup and Earth Day Fest. This Festival was organized by Americorp.

The children and adults who visited out table had fun looking and picking up all our whale and shark artifacts. And many people were surprised to learn just how light ocean sunfish bones really are.

Big thanks to Carly, our new intern this season, for a wonderful job. Carly is an undergraduate student at Bridgewater State University and is very interested in Marine Biology. Carly was a natural with the children and really got involved in all aspects of the event.  Too much to write about so just enjoy the photos!


We hope you have a great Earth Day weekend and do something (big or small) to honor our planet Earth. In our minds, every day is Earth Day, but it is always important to really celebrate big on this special weekend.
