Get your hands wet in our interactive touch tank display! See, touch and even feed animals that are found in our local tide pools, including: sea stars, bat stars, sea urchins, crabs, limpets and more. The touch tank offers visitors a fun hands-on and up-close experience with sea creatures. Guided interactions, besides being fun and surprising, will increase one’s understanding of ocean conservation.
Special thanks to the Honorable J.E.T. and Kit Rutter for providing us with our touch tank and to the City of Newport Beach Harbor Resources and Michelle Claud-Clemente for providing us with our tide pool animals and educational materials.
