Seaside Center opens for the season

The Bruce Museum’s Seaside Center opens for the summer with a special Experience the Sound event Sunday, June 24 from 1 to 4 p.m.

The event, which is sponsored by the town’s Shellfish Commission featuring programming, events and activities that promote community awareness of coastal marine life, nature, outdoor recreational pursuits and the environment. Located at the Innis Arden Cottage on Greenwich Point, the Seaside Center is an environmental and cultural facility where programs that explore the shore and sound on one of the East Coast’s most scenic coastlines are offered.

“We strive to educate visitors about this unique ecosystem and we promote realistic, sustainable choices for its conservation,” said Peter Linderoth, Manager of the Seaside Center, adding that raising awareness of issues impacting Long Island Sound is a priority.

In support of that goal, Mr. Linderoth said the center has numerous programs for children and their parents, including guided nature walks that highlight the geology and ecology of Greenwich Point as well as identification of the local flora and fauna.

He notes that visitors also may enjoy the Seaside Center at their own pace by viewing the dioramas, interactive exhibits and live specimens in the marine-life touch tank and aquariums.

The Seaside Center is open from June 24 through Sept. 2, with special events scheduled throughout the year. Regular hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Beach passes are required for entrance into Greenwich Point. Fees for non-residents are $5 per person plus $20 for parking.
