Sea Life Celebration


Ladysmith Maritime Society is hosting another Sea Life Celebration on Sunday, August 12, 2018, from 10 am to 2 pm., at the Ladysmith Community Marina (Oyster Bay Drive).

It is an opportunity to introduce young people to the magic and wonder of Ladysmith Harbour’s sea life. There will be hands-on touch tank experiences with divers, students and marine biologists; a Stz’ uminus First Nation language game and displays; art, science, drama and music activities; puppets and stories; and food for an adventure designed to appeal to everyone.

“It will be an experience that brings together families and children at our friendly community marina,” says Shirley Blackstaff, event organizer. The many educational and fun activities, led by volunteers, will take place at the LMS Welcome Centre, Big Tent, Maritime Museum and Sea Life Centre and on the Maritimer Harbour Tour Boat. It is a free event for children sponsored by Ladysmith Maritime Society and others.

20 Volunteers Needed

Sea Life Celebration is looking for volunteer divers to collect sea life, marine biologists and teachers to assist at the touch tanks, artists and crafters, musicians, photographers, greeters and anyone who enjoys working with young people and has an interest in sea life. If you are able to assist, please contact Shirley Blackstaff at 250-245-3075 or email vimarmot [at] shaw [dot] ca.
