September 23 -29

Help us celebrate Sea Otter Awareness Week from Sunday, September 23 through Saturday, September 29, 2018. Visit our resident sea otters in the Russia’s Grizzly Coast exhibit and learn more about how these charismatic marine mammals play a vital role in the coastal ecosystem. Staff and volunteers will be on hand throughout the day to share stories about sea otters and answer questions.

Activities throughout the week include:

  • Meet a keeper and learn more about our resident sea otters at our enrichment sessions scheduled at 11:00 a.m. daily throughout Sea Otter Awareness Week
  • “You otter know fun facts” 10:45 a.m. each day at the exhibit. Challenge your knowledge of sea otter trivia!
  • Sea otter bookmarks (while supplies last)
  • Sea otter story time at 10:00 a.m. & 12:00 p.m. in the Bee Hive
