GILLS CLUB – A NEW PROGRAM FOR GIRLS AT CMM

The Calvert Marine Museum is proud to announce the addition of a new free program for girls interested in learning more about sharks. Gills Club is a STEM-focused program from the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy (AWSC) with activities designed for girls ages 7 – 12. Meetings will be held on the third Wednesday of each month, beginning February 15 from 5:30 p.m. – 7 p.m. in the Harms Gallery. Preregistration is required. Click www.bit.ly//GillsClubRegistration.

AWSC is raising awareness about white sharks as a keystone species of the ocean ecosystem. It was established to support white shark research and education programs to ensure that this important species thrives.

Meetings will be held on Wednesdays, February 15, March 15, April 19 and May 17. The program will break for summer and start up again in September 2017. For more information, email Mindy Quinn at quinnmk@co.cal.md.us.
