As part of the celebrations for Canada’s 150th anniversary, Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre’s AquaVan 150 is visiting schools and community events in the Okanagan.
AquaVan 150 is the first-ever cross-Canada road trip for the mobile education program in its 22-year history.
The signature project will celebrate Canada’s milestone year at 150 stops.
It will deliver fully interactive and immersive programming to Canadians of all ages, focusing on the impacts humans are having on our rivers, lakes and oceans.
"We brought some live animals from Vancouver, as well as different artifacts so that kids can experience the many different species in out bodies of waters," AquaVan Educator Daphne Austin
The AquaVan features a 28-foot mobile aquarium, with sea stars, sea cucumbers, crabs and sea anemones, among other invertebrates from the Pacific Coast.
The van will be in the Okanagan from April 4 to 13.
