The North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher hosts Hispanic Heritage Day, Sunday, September 21, 2014. The event features programming and activities presented in both English and Spanish in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
Bilingual translators will be stationed around the Aquarium to share fun facts and information about exhibits and wildlife. Daily feedings, dive shows and behind-the-scenes tours will also be presented in Spanish. Guests of all ages can enjoy crafts and experiments at education stations.
“There is so much to be learned and experienced at the Aquarium,” said Director Peggy Sloan. “Language should not prevent people from enjoying the Aquarium and learning about the natural world.”
Hispanic Heritage Day and activities are free with Aquarium admission.
