Building Fire Update – CLOSED this weekend

Fire Update: Last night Carras Cabinets, the business that shares the building with the Estuarium had a fire. The Olympia fire department was able to keep the fire from spreading to the Estuarium and to keep the electricity on in the Estuarium side of the building. There is some water and smoke damage to the Estuarium. We are most grateful to the fire fighters.

All the sea life in the aquariums are fine.

The Estuarium will reopen next weekend – July 28 & 29, if possible.   Shark presentation by Davy Lowry, scheduled for July 21, will be rescheduled.

Thanks for all the concern that has been expressed.
