Asset 8

Plankton Explorers at Pier 62

Where Pier 62, north of the Seattle Aquarium on Alaskan Way

When Saturday, July 30 at 10am-12pm

Join Seattle Aquarium experts as they uncover the amazing life that hides in every drop of seawater: plankton! It comes in thousands of different varieties, so experts can never be sure exactly what will be found during this event. Seattle Aquarium staff will bring special equipment to collect plankton, as well as microscopes for observation. Visitors will see something truly unexpected and maybe even something Aquarium staff have never seen before!

Event is limited to 20 participants at a time who will get hands on in the order they arrive. Event will be held outdoors, so please dress for the weather.

All ages
