Touch Tank Hut Migration 

Our beloved Touch Tank Hut recently made a daring journey across the Alderney Landing parking lot!

Now located even closer to the ocean, find us on the right side of the parking lot next to the Alderney Marina.

Click the image to watch the video of the hut being lowered into place. Pretty cool, right? 

A reminder that though the Touch Tank Hut remains closed, you can still learn about ocean critters with us by joining Tidal Trekkers outings.
