If you answered yes to all of these questions then we want you to join us this summer!

The Summer Marine Science Saturday (SMSS) program will take place from June 26th until August 14th, 2010 (no class the weekend of July 4th) for a total of 7 classes. Each class is $12.50 or $70.00 for the entire summer ($5.00 pre non-refundable registration fee is required) and they can sign up at Petersburg Parks and Recreation. Children ages 7 to 11 are welcome to join. The maximum number of children per class is 15. Our interns will be running the classes from start to finish this year. Each class runs from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. each Saturday in the Activity Room at Petersburg Parks and Recreation. Each class has a different marine theme which focuses on learning about a particular local marine animal or environment in combination with a craft to bring home and games.
