It's never too early to get kids thinking about the health of the oceans and the creatures that inhabit it. Central Library of Rochester and Monroe County will this weekend host a fun interactive exhibit that allows kids to explore and appreciate the ocean using the humpback whale as an entry point — literally. Cynde McInnis, Education Director at Cape Ann Whale Watch, will share her Whalemobile, a 40-foot replica of a real whale named Nile. Visitors can go inside the replica, hear the sounds of different whale species, touch real whale parts, and learn how to help protect whales.
The Whalemobile will be at Central Library, 115 South Avenue, on Saturday, June 23, from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Free. 428-8150; roccitylibrary.org.
