Marine Life Inventories


The Marine Life Inventory is offered one Saturday per month, at the Back Bay Science Center, and the date is always determined by the best tidal conditions.

The events take place entirely outdoors from 9:00 am to (roughly) 12:30pm, check in begins at 8:45, and we recommend dressing for wet and/or muddy conditions. Each event is currently limited to 18 participants (Ages 12 & Older), and requires preregistration: see sign up button below.  

Teachers~ This program is designed for students from 7th grade through college. If you are interested in signing your class up to participate, its recommended you register several months ahead of a desired date. These events fill up fast, and any leftover space goes to the general public interested in participating.

Registration: These events fill up quickly and it is best to register as far in advance as possible.

Requests to register will not be accepted after 4:00pm, on Wednesday, the week of the event.

Please note: Participants age 12- 15 years of age will need an adult to accompany them to the program.  15-17 year olds will need an adult's signature on a release form the day of the program. The minimum age for participation is 12+.
