This Weekend Is the Last Chance to Join in the Sea Slug Lovefest!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, my son's middle school environmental group, Healing Oceans Together, is running a FREE online contest entitled The Great Sea Slug Beauty Contest.  They are asking people to vote for which of eight finalists is the most beautiful sea slug--judging not only on its appearance, but also its cool features.  Click here to participate--it is anonymous and only takes a few minutes....ESPECIALLY if you are from one of these states:

  • Idaho
  • Kansas
  • North Dakota
  • Oklahoma
  • South Dakota
  • West Virginia
  • Wyoming
Those are the only states that they haven't received any visits from, and they are really trying to get at least one vote from all 50 states (and we've got the District of Columbia, since that is where my father lives).  So if you can, please vote so they can get the most participation possible.  But the deadline is tomorrow, Sunday, February 12, so please act soon.

H2O also just put on two free educational workshops for the community about sea slugs.  About 68 people participated in the workshops, held at the libraries in Raleigh and Apex, NC.  In addition to scientific information about sea slugs and how people can help heal the oceans, the workshops featured making your own sea slug out of polymer clay or playdough (for the littler students), making sea slug valentines, playing games, and listening to sea slug stories.  It drew a diverse crowd, and it was great to see the teens working with the toddlers!
