The Bruce Museum Seaside Center is gearing up for opening day Wednesday. The beachside museum is located in Greenwich Point Park and offers an array of activities for children and adults. The center encourages visitors to learn about the ecology of the Long Island Sound and its environmental issues.
"It's a drop-in seaside museum," said Robin Garr, the museum's director of education. "We have marine tanks and a touch tank available for visitors as well."
There are two naturalists, Carey Hand and John Curry, at the center during the summer. They are assisted by high school and college volunteers.
"The activities change day to day, depending on the tide," said Garr. "There are nature walks, animal collections and horseshoe crab tagging. "
Admission is free for the Seaside Center and is open to the public from June 30 to August 29, Wednesdays through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
"The center is a great place to learn about the beautiful coastline and the animals that inhabit it," Garr said.
