Tybee Marine Science Center Savannah museums

Smoke, a 21-foot-long inflatable replica of a North Atlantic right whale makes will make her island debut in the 17th Annual Tybee Irish Heritage Celebration Parade this Sat. March 9 2019 at 3PM.

Smoke, a 23-year-old female, is key to the Tybee Island Marine Science Center’s Ocean Outreach program and travels to the Savannah/Chatham County Public School Systems’ elementary schools to teach students about these magnificent creatures.

This weekend’s celebration is perfect timing for Smoke and her debut. Right whales calve off the coast of Georgia from November to March. Smoke has had three calves and is due to have another this season. The North Atlantic right whale is one of the rarest whale species in the world, with fewer than 425 individuals remaining of this critically endangered species.

Smoke will be joined by Science Center staffers in Saturday’s parade. Staffers will walk in the parade alongside Smoke and pass out informative cards about the endangered species of North Atlantic right whales.

On parade day, the Science Center will be open from 10AM to 2PM to host a variety of free, outdoor activities for parade goers to enjoy.

Science Center outdoor activities include whale artifacts, an opportunity to meet center residents like Maize the corn snake and Zelda the box turtle, sea turtle sun bathing, sidewalk chalk plankton, calf and adult right whale measurement comparisons, and more.

Here’s an opportunity for children with Type 1 Diabetes to build confidence & strengthen their relationship with food in a healthy way: the Camp Kudzu Food for Thought Program in Savannah on May 18 2019.

The day will include a hands-on, low-carb snack challenge where children will work in teams to “shop” for their ingredients, work together to make a tasty recipe and understand how to count carbs and calculate their respective insulin dose.

Kids will participate in a “mock” dining experience where they will work in teams to estimate carb content of foods that are served to them just like in a restaurant or at a friend’s house for a sleepover. Practicing the estimation of carb counts based on identifying ingredients will boost their confidence in real-world settings.

Participants will partake in a food demonstration with the Charlie Cart Project which integrates the educational program with a mobile kitchen to deliver hands-on nutrition education. Parent education sessions will be offered during child activity time. Plan to have one adult attend.
