  • Rainbow animal coloring craft
    • Stop by our craft area and add color to our ocean animal banners. We’ll celebrate the diversity of ocean life and the rainbow of colors found in our one world ocean.
  • Activity stations: love is love—even in the deep blue sea
    • Throughout the Aquarium, you’ll be invited to leave notes of love and positive affirmation—to others, to our animals, to the universe. Let’s lift each other up with this collaborative activity created by the community!
  • Granny the orca
    • Did you know June is Orca Action Month? The theme for 2022 is Stream to Sea—celebrating the orca/salmon connection. Meet Granny, our inflatable life-sized orca, named after a matriarch of a  southern resident killer whale pod, and explore the interconnected relationships of orcas, salmon and the Salish Sea watershed.
  • Beach naturalist table
    • Meet a Seattle Aquarium beach naturalist and learn about the amazing diversity of Puget Sound’s marine plants and animals. Ever wondered what a sea star eats? What moon snail eggs look like (you might be surprised!)? These amazing volunteers can tell you that and more! (Want to meet us on the beach this summer? Get details about our Beach Naturalist program here.)
