Have you ever wondered what critters live in the deepest, darkest parts of the sea? Join us at 11:00 am on Friday, May 26, when Sara Ellis, Ph.D. will give a presentation with images and videos from the abyssal zone, deep ocean trenches, and hydrothermal vents, where entire communities live without any sunlight. Hang out afterwards and create your own tubeworm to take home!
