Meet Beach Creatures runs Thursdays-Sundays at Joppa Flats! Only $2!

Drop in before the beach, after the beach, or instead of the beach!

Our 110-gallon tide pool touch tank is open for fun hands-on learning, Thursdays through Sundays, 10:00am – 3:00pm, June 27 through August 18. Volunteers interpret the amazing animals you may or may not have seen on your own beach visits, answering all the “why, what, how” questions that all ages want to know.

  • Take-home art projects
