Check Out The St. Lucie Aquarium After Dark Dec. 6
“Not everything goes to sleep when the lights go out,” said Cristin Ryan, Marine Biology Educator at the Exhibit. “The underwater world looks very different at night and Aquarium After Dark provides a unique opportunity for visitors to observe animals and behaviors that they wouldn’t otherwise see.”
This program is recommended for adults and children ages 5 and old and the cost is $10 for adults and $8 for children. The November date is full. To register for the December 6 event, please call 772-465-3271 or email email@example.com. Advance registration is required as space is limited.
