NOAA Ocean Discovery Day - March 24

    Once again, it's time for NOAA Ocean Discovery Day! This year, it's on Saturday, March 24.

    If you've not been before, you need to go. It's a jam packed day for the entire family - there's lots to see and do for everyone -no matter how big or how little. The best part - totally free.

    They are also looking for volunteers so if you'd rather help out, you can.

    Here's all the scoop
    - while I personally can't go, I absolutely encourage everyone to take the trip to Galveston to see what's it all about. I'm sure we'll come up with a suitable place to decompress afterwards so if you have any suggestions, shout out. Galveston Island Brewery was our spot year before last, but this year their annual luau doesn't coincide with Discovery Day so there won't be any food there. But hey - it's Galveston - it's not like there are no places to eat there :D.

    Hope you can make it! I've been several times and always had a blast.

    I'm going to try to take Andre (depending on schedules/moods) but we'll probably end up at Rainforest cafe for lunch.

    We missed it last year, but the year before that was a blast.

    I’ve volunteered at Ocean Discovery Day 3-4 times and it’s lots of fun / I’ve volunteered in the Turtle Barn (primarily keeping people’s figures out of the turtle areas), at the Turtle Obstacle Course & as st one of the gates....

    This is the only weekend date that the turtle barn is open to the public! There are lots of fun activities for kids and it’s a great intro to learning about the variety of life that lives in the ocean.

    I will miss volunteering this year since I have a conflict, but I encourage other CHUMMERS to volunteer or if you have kids bring them for a fun day.

    Yes, we know - the timing is not great for us. Don't they know they should coordinate their calendar with ours??? :p

    I'll be there with the kids, bright and early for opening time because it gets busy. Margot on the turtle obstacle course will be super cute. We can do rainforest afterwards then we'll probably swing by Moody Gardens.
