In this popular signature MLSS program, a dive team brings a fascinating local collection of marine life specimens such as crabs, sea stars, and nudibranchs up from the subtidal waters adjacent to the event. While the animals are cared for in our mobile sea water tanks, members of the public enjoy supervised hands-on interactions with these beautiful and fascinating organisms.
An MLSS team of biologists and educators is on hand to answer questions and care for these creatures until their gentle return to the deep.
