World Oceans Day
World Oceans Day
8 June 2019
Join us on the 8th of June to celebrate World Oceans Day!

World Oceans Day, coordinated by The Ocean Project, encourages people all over the world to celebrate the ocean, its importance in our lives, and how each of us can protect it, no matter where we live.

Access to the Discovery Centre will be FREE all day (10am to 6pm) so visitors can come down and talk to our expert staff about the amazing local marine wildlife.

First activity of the day will be a beach clean at 10:30am, in association with North Berwick Rotary Club. We have our 3D film at 12pm and guided rockpooling session at 12:30pm. In the afternoon there will be a range of activities; drop-in, fun, family craft sessions in the education centre lead by the team from Rock and Bird (2pm-4pm), a special performance of our fantastic live science show Oceanarific at 2pm and the team from the Lobster Hatchery will be giving a talk on their award-winning conservation project in the theatre at 4pm.

All events are free, but numbers for rockpooling, our live science show and the afternoon lobster hatchery talk are limited so booking is recommended to avoid disappointment. All tickets will be issued on a first come first served basis at the start of the day.

This community event has been made possible thanks to funding support from the North Berwick Trust.
