Come and check out Harbor WildWatch's newest program, the Skansie Laboratory! Located in the kitchen of the Historic Skansie Brother's House in downtown Gig Harbor, the lab has plenty of activities, perfect for all ages. The self-guided exhibit lets you explore the environmental and geologic characteristics of the Puget Sound's past and present. Within the lab, you can imitate the role of glaciers in Puget Sound's formation; you can use your breath to demonstarte the power of wind or to change the pH of water; or you can discover how plankton interacts with microplastics floating in ocean gyres. So grab a lab coat, put on some goggles, and peer through a microscope, because it's time to learn and have fun!
The Skansie Lab is open during Visitor's Center Hours (May - September: Wednesday - Sunday, 10am-4pm; October - April: Thursday - Saturday, 10am-4pm).
