Norwalk Aquarium’s Creature Encounters To Expand

NORWALK, Conn. – Improving the health of Long Island Sound is on the minds of the staff at the Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk, and a federal grant of nearly $35,000 will help.

The aquarium’s Creature Encounters program, a social marketing and public-education initiative that uses live animals and displays to explain simple ways that visitors can be stewards, will be expanded with the Long Island Sound Futures Fund grant of $34,890.

The award is one of 39 that pooled $1.6 million from the Environmental Protection Agency, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and USDA Natural Resources
