EARTH DAY FESTIVITIES

Don’t fool around — set your alarm for April 1 and have your keyboard ready. Summer camp registration opens at 6 a.m. Registrations are accepted online only, and camps fill quickly. Aquarium camps are available for children entering grades K-8.

Give our planet a gift this Earth Day! Join us on April 22, starting at 9 a.m., for a dune grass planting project.

Did you know that there are three types of marshes — tidal salt marshes, tidal freshwater marshes, and inland freshwater marshes? Like all marshes, the tidal salt marshes found here are home to a wide variety of bird species. Small birds feed on insects, fish and crustaceans, while ducks and cormorants are aquatic birds that rely on the grassy marsh for nesting sites, as well as food such as fish, shrimp, and crabs. Even larger birds — eagles, ospreys, herons and egrets — are supported by tidal salt marshes.

Enjoy more Earth Day celebrations at the Aquarium’s Party for the Planet, April 19-22. This year’s theme focuses on migrations.

Join the Aquarium and other conservation organizations at the Crystal Coast Earth Day Festival on Saturday, April 27, at Fort Macon State Park. Get a close-up, hands-on experience with turtles, alligators, lizards and snakes. The event is free. No registration required.
