Virtual Release Day
September 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Exciting news! This year, with thanks to The Osceola Foundation, the MMA has partnered with Nantucket Community Television (NCTV) to bring our annual Release Day to your home! Join us on Saturday, September 25th from 12-1PM for this FREE virtual event.
Each summer, the Maria Mitchell Association Aquarium’s staff explore the shores of Nantucket and collect an assortment of marine life to feature at our Aquarium. When the Aquarium closes at the end of the summer, the MMA hosts a Release Day to say goodbye to our marine friends, and safely return them to the ocean.
Celebrate Climate Change Awareness Month by learning about the importance of biodiversity and Nantucket’s unique marine species through a short film, and enjoy a live Q&A with Jack Dubinsky (our Aquarium Director) at the conclusion of the event. Register with the link below:
