Diana Zaugg

I know it’s only Tuesday night but I’m ready for some adventures this weekend. I hope you are too! We went shopping at MerrittSupply and got some really good stuff we can’t wait to tell. I wanted to share with you a very special event taking place this Saturday, January 15th at the SEA LIFE Aquarium at the Legoland Resort. The SEA LIFE aquarium  will be celebrating the third annual Underwater Parks Day  with kid-friendly activities designed to raise awareness of the newly designated “Underwater Parks” or Marine Protected Areas.

There will be many fun activities including creating  personalized take-home habitats, adding to the Happy Habitat Mural inside the Aquarium and a mini Conservation Expo with hands-on exhibits that will teach your both kiddos and grownups how to take care of our beautiful coast.

Underwater Parks Day is an effort by Southern California aquariums and marine science centers to explain the need for Marine Protected Areas, which are a critical tool in replenishing the fish populations and restoring the health of coastal waters.

Underwater Parks Day at SEA LIFE Carlsbad Aquarium takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and all activities are included in the cost of Aquarium admission – $20 for adults, $17 for seniors and $13 for kids 3 to 12. For more information on SEA LIFE Carlsbad Aquarium visit www.sealifeus.com.

It’s giveaway time! One lucky family will win tickets to Underwater Day at the SEA LIFE Aquarium. This is a very short contest since we have to pick a winner by tomorrow night. Contest will close on l Wednesday, January 12th at 11:59 pm. Leave a comment letting me know what your family would love to learn at SEA LIFE Aquarium and you will be entered to win. Good luck!
