- Interactive 1000 gallon touch tank
Have a close encounter of the dry-feet kind at our Gulf
waters and Santa Rosa sound touch tanks! Visitors will have the opportunity to
not only learn about the fascinating creatures that inhabit our near-shore
waters, but will also be able to touch and even hold some if they dare. Instructors will be on hand to help guests
identify the tanks’ residents, as well as share some more fun facts about the
important roles these animals and plants play in our Panhandle ecosystems. Guests of all heights will enjoy a unique
perspective from above and below the waterline at these touch tanks, thanks to
our helpful “host” who offers up her arms for assistance.
Bringing this exhibit to life won’t cost you an arm and a
leg, but it will sure look like one. You
can help support GCDC by sponsoring the octopus-themed touch tanks, and
ultimately help our visitors to walk away with a personal experience that will
inspire them to conserve our precious resources along the shore. Contact our office today to find out more
about getting involved with this one-of-a-kind exhibit!
