The BHI Conservancy offers an exciting hands-on class that allows participants to learn about the marine life found in the surrounding waters. The program is aimed at children and their parents/guardians and features a live dissection of whelk egg casings. During the class, participants will have the opportunity to meet and learn about different creatures that inhabit the saltwater tanks at the Conservancy.
The class is designed to be interactive and informative, with knowledgeable staff on hand to answer any questions and provide additional insights into the marine world. Participants will gain an understanding of the differences between various animals, such as whelks and conchs, and learn about the unique characteristics of marine creatures such as horseshoe crabs and hermit crabs.
As a hands-on class, all participants will have the opportunity to handle live animals and engage with the material in an exciting and engaging way. However, a parent or guardian must be present with each child participant and will need to purchase their own ticket for the program.
This program is an excellent opportunity for families to bond over a shared interest in marine life while gaining a deeper understanding of the unique and fascinating creatures that inhabit the waters surrounding Bald Head Island.
