April 22 @ 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Polynesian Voyagers: New Explorations of Island Earth

Throughout the day, we will highlight the amazing work going on here in Virginia and across the ocean to learn about and protect our planet. Visit with scientists from Virginia Sea Grant, and learn about their cutting-edge marine science research. Talk to conservationists working with Newport News Shipyard to restore Virginia’s longleaf pine tree population. And check in with the Polynesian Voyaging Society as the Hokule’a sails across the Pacific Ocean in the style of ancient Polynesian navigators.

Earth Day programming will take place in the Museum’s main lobby, and is free with admission.
