The Marine Mammal Center is pleased to present the first in its new monthy series Marine Science Sundays, held on the 2nd Sunday of the Month! These fun-filled days of family-friendly tours, classroom activities and more will be centered around a new theme each month.
In honor of the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge this May, this month's theme is Under the Bridge: Marine Mammals in the Bay! Come learn about our patients at the hospital and all the different marine mammals that live in our backyard. Docent-led tours will take you around the hospital showcasing some of the patients we are caring for and how our veterinarians are getting them better. Classroom presentations will feature interactive activities and multimedia showcasing the magnificent variety of marine mammals in San Francisco Bay, including the return of harbor porpoises after a 60 year absence, everyone's favorite California sea lions at Pier 39, and even the occassional dolphin or whale!
Can't make it this time? Marine Mammal Sundays will occur each month at The Marine Mammal Center on the 2nd Sunday of the Month. Check out our website at MarineMammalCenter.org for more details on specific topics each month.
The next Marine Science Sunday will be on June 10, 2012.
