Meet the otters and participate in hands-on fun at Calvert Marine Museum’s OtterMania Friday, March 31
Enjoy “otterly” outrageous activities, face painting and meet Chumley, Chessie Grace and the newest otter, Calvert, at the event which runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Perfect for families with preschool and elementary age children, OtterMania invites kids to dance the “Swim” with the otter mascots, learn how the otters are trained and listen to otter tales. Meet the otter keepers at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. and watch an otter training session at 3 p.m.
An Otter Breakfast will also be held at 9 a.m. Learn about otter enrichment and habitat. Go behind the scenes to speak with a keeper and observe a feeding. A continental breakfast will be provided. Children must be at least 8 years old and accompanied by an adult to participate. Fee for the breakfast is $20 per person, $15 for members and includes museum admission. Space is limited and registration is required. E-mail Melissa at email@example.com to register for the breakfast.
The Museum Store is stocked full of “otter” merchandise including clothing, toys, puppets and mugs. Guess how many otters are stuffed in the display case for a chance to win a free plush otter. The winner will be announced at 3 p.m. You do not need to be present to win.
Museum admission is $9 for adults; $7 for seniors, military with valid I.D. and AAA members; $4 for children ages 5 – 12; free for children age 4 and younger and museum members.
