Ladysmith Maritime Society set to host 2nd Sea Life Celebration

Ladysmith Maritime Society is hosting another Sea Life Celebration on Aug. 12 at the community marina on Oyster Bay Drive.

The 2nd annual event is an opportunity to introduce young people to the magic and wonder of the sea life of the Ladysmith Harbour.

There will be hands-on touch tank experiences with divers, students and marine biologists; a Stz’uminus First Nation language game and displays, art, science, drama and music activities; puppets and stories, plus food for an adventure designed to appeal to everyone.

It will be an experience that brings together families and their children at our friendly, community marina.

The many educational and fun activities, led by volunteers, will take place at the LMS Welcome Centre, Big Tent, Maritime Museum and Sea Life Centre and on the ‘Maritimer’ Harbour Tour Boat. It is a free event for children sponsored by Ladysmith Maritime Society and others.

Organizers have reached out to our communities for their expertise and support and have a working team of wonderful people contributing to this event.

All are invited to the LMS Community Marina to participate in the celebration from 10 am to 2 pm.

Contact Shirley Blackstaff for more information or if you wish to volunteer or support this family summer event at vimarmot@shaw.ca or 250-245-3075.
