Join MAMEA to “Explore America’s Aquatic Treasures” on Saturday, Feb. 4. Registration is only $20 and includes transportation to and from DC, all events, and the food and beverage reception at the Aquarium. Delaware participants (and those further north who wish to join us!) will meet at the Park-n-Ride lot on the corner of Routes 896 and 4 in Newark, Del. at 8 a.m that morning . Transportation may also be provided from southern Delaware if there is enough interest. We will meet up with a group of other educators at 11a.m. at the Constitution Avenue entrance to the Museum of Natural History for a visit to the Sant Ocean Hall.
After touring Ocean Hall and getting a light lunch (on your own), we will move down the street to the nation’s oldest public aquarium – the National Aquarium. A 2 p.m. shark talk and feeding will be followed by a food and beverage reception, a lecture on sea turtle conservation and legislation, and discussion of lesson plans on sea turtles before concluding at 5 p.m.
