Scouts and 4-H members can come explore the many animals at the center with their families, clubs or troops during public walk-in hours, special ‘scout nights’, or scheduled field trips.  Biomes staff can work with groups to design programs and activities to specifically meet loop, badge, pin and project requirements.

Perhaps the most requested of all our programs, this is an introduction to local marine life featuring ten of our most fascinating species. With age appropriate discussion and animal petting, this program is lively and highly educational. Many marine-related concepts are presented such as habitats, predator/prey, exoskeletons, camouflage and regeneration.  Sample animals include sea star, brittle starfish, spider crab, horseshoe crab, and a pufferfish demonstration.

Large Group Program
For over 30 children, $250 for 1 hour.  Call to schedule 401-885-4690

Our large-group assembly programs are great for bigger crowds.  We bring some of our most recognizable animals found in Narragansett Bay. Our knowledgable educator will introduce each animal and present some interesting facts.  A number of audience members will be invited up to be a part of the presentation.  Sample animals include sea stars, horseshoe crabs, a whelk, a seahorse, and a pufferfish demonstration.
