2014 Blue Discovery Family Days

During family events, visitors can take part in hands-on activities and share why they care about the oceans and what they are doing to help protect our greatest natural resource. Take a look at some of the fun we've had in the last year!



We will have opportunities to showcase environmental programs happening in schools or in local communities during a Blue Discovery Family Day. Please contact kids.ed@neaq.org for details on how to nominate a program for inclusion.
