You know summer has arrived in Greenwich when the Bruce Museum Seaside Center (located in the Floren Family Environmental Center at Innis Arden Cottage, Greenwich Point Park) celebrates their annual Grand Re-opening!
The Seaside Center is located in the Floren Family Environmental at Innis Arden Cottage at Greenwich Point Park. The Bruce Museum provides a staff of two full time Naturalists in addition to volunteers and interns, who educate visitors about the ecology of the Long Island Sound.
The opening, which occurred on June 24, 2018 from 1:00 to 4:00PM, was part of the 12th Annual 'Experience the Sound' event hosted by the Greenwich Shellfish Commission (with additional support from the Greenwich Conservation Commission and the Greenwich Historical Society).
This fun (and free) event was designed to expand the Greenwich community’s awareness and appreciation of the coastal marine life, nature, outdoor recreational pursuits, and the environment by showcasing local organizations and the educational institutions that care for and promote them.
There were colorful tents staffed by community groups and organizations in Greenwich (and the surrounding area) that organize water sports and other environmental pursuits. There were oysters and clams on the half-shell. There were activities for children. There was a live-animal marine touch tank. And there were hints of history, ecology, environmental stewardship, PLUS much, much more.
Living Greenwich photographer Pam Grunow was on hand at the scene and captured images of the coastal goings-on...
