The Bruce Museum’s Seaside Center will celebrate its opening for the 2017 season on Sunday, June 25 in conjunction with Experience the Sound. One of the highlights of the event is an opportunity to see, touch, and hold crabs, shellfish, small fish, and other under-water creatures in a large live-animal marine touch tank.
Another crowd-pleaser is the shoreline seining and plankton tow. Participants can help the Center’s staff with seining (using very large nets) to gather plankton and other small creatures living in our ocean’s water.
The Seaside Center is located inside the Innis Arden Cottage.
