October 2019

After nearly two decades of Halloween hoopla, Trick or Treat Under the Sea at the NC Aquarium on Roanoke Island is retiring. Huge thanks to everyone who made this event successful for so many years, including our community, Aquarium staff and volunteers, and TOTUS exhibitors. Watch our website for updates on new events!

Our annual Red Cross Blood Drive is Oct. 3 from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. Enter sponsor code NCARI at redcrossblood.org to schedule your appointment today. Individuals donating blood at the drive receive free admission!

There’s no better way to spend a fall day than going outdoors! Crabbing, kayaking and fishing programs are on our schedule this month. Register for an outdoor program today!

Last month, the Aquarium held its first Homeschool Day. Educational activities for all grade levels focused on various topics, including biology, science, math, and art. Students participated in nature sketching, a stuffed animal clinic, “Geek Out” stations, a mock sea turtle stranding and more!
