Long Description:
This Marine Center focuses on the local marine life that can be found in the Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The following information is from their Website:
Our Marine Exhibits building on the pier houses a wide variety of intertidal plants and animals indigenous to Puget Sound. The aquaria, touch pools and hands-on exhibits are carefully designed to enhance visitors knowledge and understanding of local marine habitats. Friendly staff and volunteer interpreters will meet you at the door and guide you through this dynamic intertidal experience.
The center also hosts about 15 wildlife cruises from their Fort Worden pier each year. Regular lectures are scheduled, and during the summer there are day camps and a residential camp.
