Feed the Beach Creatures at Joppa Flats

October 6 @ 4:00 PM - 5:15 PM

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 4:00 PM on Tuesday, repeating until October 27, 2020

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.

Meet at Joppa Flats Education Center, Newburyport. Covid-19 safety protocols will be provided. All participants must wear a mask and complete a Covid-19 self-health assessment prior to the program. Dress for the weather; use protection from biting insects.

Audience: Family (suitable for children 6 – 11 years)
Members: Adult $9.00, Child $8.00
Nonmembers: Adult $10.00, Child $9.00
