The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Join us every Wednesday during the summer starting June 19 for different natural or cultural history activities. On this Wednesday, we will be dipping nets in the lagoon to look for critters. Nets, field guides and other equipment are provided. All the awesome critters we find will be returned to the lagoon at the end of the program. Wear shoes and clothes that can get dirty.
