World Oceans Week

Saturday, June 1 & Saturday, June 8

Celebrate and honor our oceans with the Aquarium during World Oceans Week! We're showing our love and respect for local waterways that are home to so many of the marine animals that need our protection. Join us for a creek cleanup to make a difference and reduce the plastic on our shores. On World Oceans Day, we'll March for the Ocean and make our voices heard. Hope we see you there!
