On Saturdays, Feb. 13 and 27, the Aquarium of Niagara will features two full days dedicated to conservation issues (and making lessons fun for children of all ages).

The Aquarium of Niagara always has unique activities such as sea lion shows, seal presentations and penguin feedings. On these two Saturdays, the Aquarium of Niagara is concentrating on delivering this message in a way children will understand and appreciate.

Just for the price of admission, there will be special activities, including a special story hour, crafts, a group penguin encounter, science experiments and games.

"We noticed that our young visitors really liked our interactive experiences, including our 'Sustainable Sea' food area and our 'Ripple' video game, where people navigate a clown fish through the water, " education curator Sarah Courtney said. "So a group of us got together and created an event filled with hands-on learning with an emphasis on fun."

All activities are free with paid admission.

The Aquarium of Niagara, committed to integrating conservation and awareness of aquatic ecosystems into every visitor's life, is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 363 days a year.
