Night at the Museum: Stories from the Sea

Dive into a night celebrating our favorite marine marvels and denizens of the deep!

The ocean is filled with so many incredible life forms, and many of us only encounter a small fraction of them. How are these organisms adapted to survive in such a different environment from ours? Answer these questions and more with us as we explore these stories from the sea! 

Specimen preparation- As always, our Collections Manager and skinners will be turning dead animals into museum specimens. Ask questions and get hands-on with his dissections and preparations! Specimen preparation will be in room 297.

Live animals- Get up close and personal with some special guests from the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium!

Kid's craft- Create a jellyfish suncatcher! The kid's craft will be in room 283. 

Guest speakers- Learn about the Ikkatsu Project's efforts to raise awareness on marine plastic pollution!

This is a free, family-friendly, drop-in event.

Join us April 25th, from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. at the University of Puget Sound Campus (located at 1500 N Warner St, Tacoma, WA 98416) in Thompson Hall room 295. Directions to Thompson Hall can be found here.
