Here's what's happening at the Audubon Nature Center and Aquarium this week.

Explore the Estuary for Kids!
Bring the kids to explore the amazing diversity of the estuary, from tidal creeks and salt marshes to the rocky shoreline! Kids will use different types of nets and search for fish, crabs and shrimp in the shallow waters of Prudence Island. Walk the shoreline to see what the tide has left behind and watch the ospreys and egrets hunt for food. This is a great family program! For safety guidelines and advance registration, visit the events calendar at www.asri.org.
