Don’t miss the Whalemobile at City Hall THIS Friday!

Sawyer Free Library to host Whale Watch Naturalist Cindy McInnis and her life-sized inflatable whale THIS FRIDAY, March 31, 3:30–5:30 pm, at Gloucester City Hall in Kyrouz Auditorium, as part of its Young Gloucester Scientist’s Club

Kids can meet “Nile,” a representation of a 35-year-old adult female humpback whale based on a real humpback whale that frequents Gloucester’s coastal waters. They will have the opportunity to step inside the 43-foot long and 30-foot wide inflatable humpback and learn how whales are similar and different from humans in this interactive program. They will learn about Nile’s migratory path, how many calves she’s had, and how researchers came to this information. Artifacts such as baleen, teeth, and bones will be available for children to see and feel as a part of this interactive program.

The Whalemobile program is suitable for 2nd-8th graders, ages 6 and up. It is free and open to all to attend, although registration is required for each young scientist planning on stepping into the whale.

Please register HERE or People can sign up in half-hour intervals starting at 4:00 pm and ending at 5:30 pm.  

The event will take place in Kyrouz Auditorium on the second floor of Gloucester City Hall located at 9 Dale Avenue.
