Sharks are Way Cool because . . .
Sunday, September 3 | 1:00 - 3:00 pm
Sharks are some of the most fascinating and misunderstood animals in the ocean. They help to keep balance in ocean ecosystems. Sharks are not a threat to people – we’re better off with heathy shark populations than we are without them. This talk with Dr. David Shiffman, AKA @WhySharksMatter, will also discuss Canadian sharks and shark conservation issues.
Included with museum admission or membership

Seagrass Meadows are Way Cool because . . .
Sunday, October 1 | 1:00 - 3:00 pm
