SEA Discovery Museum - Lauren Kemper
On Sept 29th, Lauren Kemper, Volunteer and Program Coordinator of the SEA Discovery Museum, shared with us the changes, improvements and future plans of our local marine science center (it was formerly called the Poulsbo Marine Science Center). The “SEA” in the title stands for Science Education Aquarium. Lauren, a UW graduate, has been with the SEA Discovery Museum since 2004. Thanks to a revamp by Western Washington University, the museum is now open 6 days per week, being seen by about 10,000 visitors per year –offering field trips and volunteer opportunities. One of the many projects the SEA is working on is compiling data on the food dynamic of Liberty Bay.
 
Depending on the age group, programs can include classroom work, time on the floating lab, Kid’s/GEMS night out, summer camps, and Grandparents University. The museum also offers internships for college students and soon hopes to offer internships to high school age scholars. 
 
How can Rotarian’s help? SEA is always looking for volunteers – no experience necessary. SEA also operates primarily on donations, so please consider giving to this local treasure.
