The N.C. Aquarium at Fort Fisher ups the green factor for St. Patrick’s Day.

Visitors to the Aquarium on Sunday, March 17 may not discover a pot o’ gold but they will find a bucket full of fun during It IS Easy Being Green festivities. Activities include a recycled craft project, games and prizes. Staff horticulturists will guide garden tours. Adventurers young and old can discover environmental tips and animal facts during scavenger hunts. Also, two Green Behind the Scenes tours, at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., highlight Aquarium conservation efforts and sustainability. In addition the University of North Carolina Wilmington’s Irish Stepdancing Club performs at noon and 2 p.m.

It IS Easy Being Green programs are free with regular Aquarium admission.

The Green Behind the Scenes tours require advance registration and a fee. Individuals aged 8 to 13 are $13; ages 13 and older are $15. Aquarium members are $7. For more information about the Green Behind the Scenes Tour and to register go here.
