Bug Out
Earth Day at the Ocean Institute


When you think of ocean science you probably don’t think of bugs, but you should! Insects are very important in making healthy plants, beaches, and oceans.

Visit Ocean Institute on Earth Day weekend, April 21 and 22, to learn why insects are essential to keeping our oceans and beaches healthy. Join us for a comparative anatomy lab of shrimp and grasshoppers, make your own bug box, discover why bees are key, and more.

In addition to our activities above, visitors can participate in a special workshop where they will create their own plastic-free Butterfly Feeder to take home. Pre-registration is required, and space is limited. Workshops will be held on both Saturday, April 21 and Sunday, April 22 at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm. Workshops will last approximately one hour.
