Celebrate Humpback Whale Awareness Month with a marine biologist from the Coastal Research and Education Society of Long Island (CRESLI). Children will learn about the various types of whales found off Long Island, how to identify them, and how to distinguish individual humpback whales by their unique tail shapes and markings. Activities include match games with tail-shaped puzzle pieces, suggesting names for local whales, and creating a unique tail pattern of their own. All attendees will receive a take-home packet including a personalized certificate of completion, assorted marine mammal activity sheets, and a CRESLI identification guide to local marine mammals.
