A month of festivities at Point Defiance Zoo's new Pacific Seas Aquarium


Have you checked out the new Pacific Seas Aquarium at Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma?

It opened last fall, but during April there will be festivities every day, both at the zoo and in the community: a month of animal feeds, aquarist dives and talks, filmmakers, artists, speakers, storytelling and hands-on activities.

There are too many to list here, but this is where to find a complete schedule.

Activities are categorized, too, with dives and feeds taking place on Monday and Wednesday; Ocean Voices speakers on Tuesdays; storytelling on Thursdays, art events on Fridays and a special category called Weekend Wonders.

The beautiful new aquarium features every kind of sea creature you can imagine, plus a strong environmental and educational theme. Your kids might be so blown away by the sharks and rays and fun things to do that they won't realize just how much they are learning!

Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium: 5400 N. Pearl St. Tacoma, WA 98407 (inside Point Defiance Park).

Pause before you post: The downside of putting your kids on social media

Of course your kids are adorable and you want everyone on Facebook and Instagram to see. But don’t forget that when you put them online, you’re giving your kids a digital history and potentially exposing them to danger.
