We are so proud to present the completed masterpiece of our magnificent dolphin sculpture created by our very own Staff Member, Elizabeth! She beautifully illustrates the all-encompassing spirit of Clearwater Marine Aquarium, including our amazing animal residents, staff, volunteers and most outstandingly our mission!

On Sunday, November 17th, the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and the Clearwater Regional Chamber are teaming up with area artists to offer you an exciting art experience. With some coaching from a pro, you will decorate a 7″ tall resin dolphin, which you can then take home. All supplies will be provided: dolphin, paint and paint brushes. In addition, you get a free day at Winter’s Dolphin Tale Adventure (WDTA). The dolphins are custom molded replicas of the 6 ft tall dolphins that comprise the Clearwater’s Dolphins Trail!

Classes will be held on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2013 at 11 am and 1 pm. Classes will last for 1 hour. Two classes will be held each hour – one for children, 5 – 12 years of age – taught by Artist Haley Kukoleck and one for those 13 years of age and older taught by Artist Vanessa Montenegro. Maximum class size is 20 people.
Price for one person is $39.95. To register go to http://bit.ly/17bOeDK or stop by WDTA at 300 Cleveland St., Clearwater, FL 33755.

Great American Clean UpThis year, CMA is hosting the annual Spring Coastal Clean-Up with the help of our friends at Keep Pinellas Beautiful and we need your help!  This amazing opportunity to contribute to our work in marine life preservation is taking place on St. Patrick’s Day – Saturday, March 17, 2012 – from 8:30am to 11:30am.  We will have themed refreshments, as well as clean-up supplies for all volunteers!  The only thing missing is YOU!  Come on out and take part in “Go Green with Winter & Friends!”  Meet us in the CMA parking lot near our ticket booths. There is no cost to participate, and for every bag of trash, your group will receive a free general admission pass to CMA to visit Winter and her other rescued pals.

Please feel free to contact us at ldellert@cmaquarium.org for more information, as well as RSVP your school group, scout group, or individual so we know to expect you!  Help us make this annual event a success and prevent marine life injuries, like those sustained by many of our resident animals.

Your friends at CMA!
