The Joppa Flats riverside yard will be set up with all our beach creatures, from hermit crabs to horseshoe crabs! Our amazing animal husbandry interns care for and feed our marine life a few times a week, and now it's YOUR turn to help! Education Coordinator Lisa Hutchings will lead this program, where we'll teach you how different groups of animals eat, then provide you with food, then show you how to feed the creatures at your family's "feeding station!" Don't miss this super fun chance to interact with our beach creatures before they are returned home to their habitats for the winter.

The program on October 13 is cancelled due to the rain.
