After over a year of seawall construction directly in front of the Aquarium, I’m happy to report that we are in the home stretch, with completion anticipated in early spring. Pay us a visit soon to see the changes in progress, and be sure to take note of the light-penetrating glass blocks in the sidewalks on your way in: they’re in place to aid migrating salmon.
Completion of the section in front of our facility represents a major milestone in the overall seawall project, and an important step closer to the redevelopment of Seattle’s central waterfront. With your support, we at the Aquarium continue with the expansion planning that will seal our place as the centerpiece of the new waterfront, with exciting new exhibits and programming devoted to ocean health. We recently completed an implementation plan for this extensive and complex project; I look forward to sharing more details with you as they develop.
In the meantime, please take advantage of the many events and programs at your Seattle Aquarium in the months to come—visit our website for all the details. Thank you again for your support!
