World Oceans Day Celebration at Mystic Aquarium

Mystic Aquarium and West Marine’s BlueFuture Program are partnering to bring the ocean to you through engaging, hands-on activities during our biggest World Oceans Day celebration yet! Visit with local organizations that help to protect our ocean, learn how to make responsible and sustainable seafood purchases, discover how marine debris affects our oceans and explore solutions to the problem, plus so much more. Kids can even play in the mud – all in celebration of the influence our oceans have on the wellbeing of our planet.
