Junior Scientist Workshop Series: What’s Down the Shore?

Saturday, September 25, 2021

10:00 AM-12:00 PM

Why do we all like going to the beach? Shorelines are some of the most popular places for people to live and relax, but there’s so much more on the shore!

Ages 8-11

Many species of birds, fish, mammals and TONS of invertebrates can be found there. Find out just how many shelled creatures there are with a peek at the Academy’s vast Malacology Collection, and learn about the amazing adaptations they have.

Discover the most successful strategies for life on the beach with hands-on activities, and find out how survival is a shore thing!

Space is limited; register here
