Aquarium educators will provide activities and resources to explore local animals and habitats at Carson Beach. Look for our blue tent near the pavilion. This initiative aims to provide opportunities for youth to practice science and literacy skills in an after-school setting.

Summer excursions to Boston beaches allow Aquarium educators to encourage youth to practice these skills in a new and local setting. Finding animals is always a cool experience, but there are also opportunities to dig deeper. “Why do you think it has this shape?” might be a question an educator poses to a 5-year-old who is excited about finding a mussel shell. Finding the correct answer to these types of questions is not our primary goal. Instead, we strive to get youth to think critically, make predictions, and communicate with Aquarium educators and each other!

Carson Beach is accessible via public transportation. Take the MBTA Red Line to JFK/UMass Station and then walk .5 miles north on William J. Day Boulevard to the entrance. From Andrew Station, walk east on Preble Street to the entrance. Nearby parking is also available.
