With the New England Aquarium

How about a fun day of learning and discovering?  To celebrate World Oceans Day, the New England Aquarium is planning a lively hands-on, family-friendly, educational day on Sunday, June 7th from 11am-4pm. Learn about how to protect the oceans from threats of pollution, sea level rise, ocean acidification, and overfishing.  Activities of the day include free harbor cruises provided by Boston Harbor Cruises, sustainable seafood cooking demonstrations with guest chefs, a scavenger hunt-style game, live appearances by Magic 106.7, and exhibits on the Aquarium’s growing teen, youth, volunteer, and community service programs. 

Ben & Jerry’s will be handing out free scoops of ice cream, beginning at noon, while supplies last.

This outdoor celebration will take place on the Aquarium’s city-side plaza on Central Wharf and the Aqaurium’s harbor-side Harbor Terrace Tent.  This event is free and open to the public.  Aquarium admission, Simons IMAX ® Theatre tickets, and Whale Watch tickets are separate.
