Science Literacy Week at Champneys' West Aquarium

We have events planned from September 16th to 21st, 2019. 
 Our topic for the week is Ocean Plastics and its Relationship to the Ecosystem. 
 This opportunity is funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and conducted in partnership with the Ocean Science Centre of Memorial University. 
 We are looking forward to the week and greatly appreciate the support extended from the 
Department of Fisheries and Oceans.

We have a slightly revised schedule as we will be accommodating students 
from schools throughout the region. 

We will be open to the public Mon to Fri from 2 pm to 5 pm. 
 Admission this week is free.

The Aquarium will be hosting its first movie night 
Sept 20 at 7 pm.  

 “A Plastic Ocean” will be featured.  
Bring your beverage in a reusable container.  
Purchase popcorn for $1 per bag. 

Join us Sept 21st  at 2 pm for “An Ocean of Opportunity”; a presentation by Dr. Paul Snelgrove,
 Professor, Memorial University and Director of Canadian Healthy Oceans Network. 
 The presentation will be followed by the official opening of the “Edison B. Freeman Learning Centre”.

Please find attached a notice for the Saturday, September 21st presentation, as well as, a poster summarizing these events.   If you have any questions please contact the Aquarium at 709-464-2510.
