Get an up-close look at dinnertime for the fascinating marine life in our 110-gallon touch tank, and help us identify, sort, and feed them! Our digital hand-held microscope will help you to see sand dollars channeling food into their tiny mouths and green sea urchins wiggling their spines, along with many other surprising sights.

Offered Tuesday afternoons, June 23 through July 14.
