NEW PROGRAM! Come to Joppa Flats after school, and join Lisa Hutchings and her animal husbandry team for a fascinating look at feeding time for the marine life in our 110-gallon touch tank. With the help of Joppa's digital hand-held microscope, you'll see sand dollars channeling food into their mouths and green sea urchins wiggling tube feet and spines. You’ll help us identify, sort, and feed a wide variety of crabs and mollusks. Watch our horseshoe crab devour sea worms and hermit crabs "beg" for supper. As a special treat, we'll show you our newest inhabitants, 8-inch-wide sea stars and a young lobster!
