Pier Into the Night with Harbor WildWatch @ The Club
Wednesday, Nov. 15 ~ 5:30 to 7 p.m.
This is a special family-friendly “Mocktails & Fishtales” event hosted by Gig Harbor WildWatch, so kids of all ages are invited to The Club @ the Boatyard for an exciting evening of seeing what lurks below the surface in the harbor.
The event morphs two swimmingly popular programs by the marine education organization: its Cocktails & Fishtales science socials for the over-21 crowd, and the Pier Into the Night education evenings with divers bringing up creatures for a hands-on closer look. The non-alcohol “Mocktails & Fishtales” was spawned to bring together all ages for this fun, after-dark marine experience.
All Ages Invited to School Together for ‘Mocktails & Fishtales’ at The Club
So, come to The Club @ The Boatyard for an indoors Pier Into the Night, which is normally held outside on the Jerisich public dock. Stay warm and dry inside the venue at Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard while Harbor WildWatch SCUBA divers provide a nighttime peek into Gig Harbor Bay with their live video stream. Viewers will become virtual divers themselves for a glimpse of the colorful underwater world in the depths of Puget Sound.
A Harbor WildWatch naturalist will be on hand to provide information and identify creatures such as delicate, wispy feather-plumed worms, strikingly beautiful nudibranchs prowling barnacle-covered pilings, and maybe even some sea stars on the comeback from the mysterious wasting disease that has plagued Puget Sound.
Steward Club & Harbor History Museum members – free to attend. Non-members – suggested donation $5. Takeout dinners welcome. Join The Club @ the Boatyard for just $1 when you attend Mocktails & Fishtales. — Presented by US Bank
