Seaside Center Science Programs Begin in Greenwich

GREENWICH, Conn. – The Seaside Center at Greenwich Point will kick off an ongoing family-oriented series of programs this month featuring environmental organizations, lectures, sea creatures, and crafts for kids.

First Sunday Science at the Seaside Center kicks off March 18 from 1:30 to 4 p.m. with “Living on the Edge: Surviving the Intertidal Zone. ” The afternoon designed for families will feature marine life from Long Island Sound in the Seaside Center’s indoor marine tanks. There also will be drop-in activities, including guided outdoor beach explorations and environmentally sustainable crafts.

Later in the afternoon, Dr. Frank Cantelmo of St. John’s University will discuss life in the intertidal zone in his presentation of “Life on the Edge.”

First Sunday Science will continue throughout the year on the first Sunday of each month, featuring Audubon Greenwich, SoundWaters, Friends of Greenwich Point and other area environmental organizations.

On Sunday, April 1, Greenwich launches Earth Day Month with an Open House from 1:30 to 3 p.m. at the Seaside Center and Floren Family Environmental Center at Innis Arden Cottage in Greenwich Point Park. There will be family activities and local environmental organizations — such as the Greenwich Conservation Commission, Shellfish Commission and Bruce Museum — will be on hand.

The Seaside Center is located in the newly renovated Floren Family Environmental Center at Innis Arden Cottage in Greenwich Point Park in Old Greenwich. The park is open year round, but passes are required from May 1 to Oct. 31.

All activities are free and suitable for people of all abilities and ages. Some activities will be held outside, so dress warmly. For more information, call 203-413-6742.
