Discover the spooky side of Gloucester’s marine life! During this family-friendly educational program, we’ll be offering monstrous art projects and a chance to meet some live local sea creatures. Learn about scary deep sea creatures and the giant marine life of the distant past as we create a Sea Monster Chalk Mural. Paint a 20-foot long wooden sea serpent and discover the legend of the Gloucester Sea Serpent, said to have visited Gloucester Harbor in 1817. During our Creature Feature, children will get a chance to touch or hold exciting sea life, such as spider crabs, sea stars, and lobsters, as they learn amazing facts about these animals. The event will be hosted in our newly renovated Marine Science Classroom, which now features a giant squid mural and a vast collection of shells and skeletons of the sea!
We’ll also be celebrating 13 Days of Marine Halloween online, so be sure to like Maritime Gloucester on Facebook for fun facts about the creepy creatures of the deep!
