Audubon Summer of Sustainability lures in supporters to the Aquarium of the Americas

A six-course meal made by chefs from Angeline, Bayona, Caribbean Room, Coquette, GW Fins and Pêche was definitely an enticement of the Audubon Summer of Sustainability dinner at the Aquarium of the Americas.

The Rise of Civil Rights Tourism in America’s Deep South

Over the past three years, new and newly revamped civil rights museums have appeared across the Deep South, proving to be popular tourist attractions and economic engines.

But this is not happening without difficulty. Historically, due to the horrific and humiliating nature of slavery and the post-Civil War Jim Crow era, the South has been very slow to publicly recognize these atrocities, much less build expensive museums on the subject to attract visitors from local or far away.

NORWALK, CT — If your name is Jonah, and you’re an adult, you’ll be treated to free admission Labor Day Weekend at the Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk, as part of a promotion for its “Giant Walk-In Whale” exhibit, the local attraction announced.

Amid budget cuts, teachers scrimp for student supplies

Teachers in the U.S. have long reached into their own pockets to help cover the cost of school supplies. But that financial burden is getting heavier amid funding cuts around the country for public education.

That’s down from roughly $15 per child during her student-teaching days more than a dozen years ago.

“I don’t know anybody who doesn’t dip into their own pocket,” she said. “Most teachers love

National Aquarium Behind The Scenes

I’ve encountered this cowfish thanks to an enthusiastic guide called Allan, who takes us on a behind-the-scenes tour of the National Aquarium in Baltimore. After our visit to the sick bay, he leads us beneath a complex system of pipes and tubing, the filtration system, into a brightly lit surgery center that functions mostly as an autopsy room. “We never just wonder what happened to an animal here,” he explains. “We dissect it to see what we can learn about the death.”
