Night at the Museum: Fishermen's Tales
Dive into learning during Night at the Museum, an after-hours STEM exploration series for families at Seacoast Science Center. This quarterly program features a range of environmental topics, and engages community partners and friends to collectively learn about important local and global ocean conservation issues and how we can help make a difference.
In December, we are focusing on fish. Seafood is one of the most prized resources in the Gulf of Maine, and it plays a key part in our economy and cultural identity. Join Seacoast Science Center for an action-packed evening to find out what is changing above and below the water’s surface that is impacting local fish populations.
