A Shoreside at MSI promises to be a fun morning of exploration and discovery! At our beach front facility participants will work as a team to pull in a large seine (net) to catch local fishes, set a mud grab to gather bottom samples and invertebrates, tow a plankton net and view their catch through our video microscope, and learn the difference between these exciting groups of creatures. All attendees must pre-register. Any unregistered attendees will not be allowed to participate. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian; thus, parents or guardians must pre-register themselves and each additional person (second parent, siblings, any extra persons), Health and safety protocols require all participants to wear mask and practice social distancing. Our facilities have been prepared with your family and our staff’s safety in mind. Participants are subject to health and safety screenings upon arrival, including a health questionnaire, temperature check, and mandatory handwashing.
