Discovery Lab at VIMS – Be a Bay Buddy!

April 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Discovery Labs are free, family-friendly programs provided each month by the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (CBNERR) at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) in Gloucester Point. Designed with elementary-aged youth and their parents in mind, each lab focuses on a different topic related to the Chesapeake Bay and our local environment and includes exhibits, demonstrations, and hands-on activities as well as a short presentation by a scientist from VIMS.

Celebrate Earth Day at the April 17th Discovery Lab. Through eco-friendly activities, crafts, and demonstrations, attendees will learn about human impacts on the Chesapeake Bay and ways they can lessen those impacts and lead more “bay-friendly” lifestyles.

All Discovery Labs take place from 6:00-8:00 pm (presentation from 6:30-7:00 pm) on the VIMS campus in Gloucester Point. Registration is required due to limited space. Visit www.vims.edu/events or call 804-684-7061 to register and find out more information on this and all upcoming Discovery Labs.
