Come join us on a work day at the Exploration Center & Aquarium! On March 19-21, we will be tackling the following projects:

  • Aquarium maintenance such as cleaning and painting
  • Harvesting American beach grass (Ammophila brevigulata) for transplanting to dune restoration sites (outdoors)

Perfect project for small groups! We will rotate between the different tasks, so please come prepared for both.

Please dress in clothes suitable for cleaning and painting, with plenty of layers for the outdoor beach grass work. Please bring your own reusable garden gloves and knee pads, if you have them, and we will provide some as well.

If you have questions, or any trouble registering, please contact July Lewis at or 401-272-3540 x130. Thank you!
