“The Nicholas Sonntag Marine Education Center is ‘a bridge’ between the land and the sea… our oceans are struggling to be healthy and sustainable. We have an opportunity and a challenge to educate ourselves and each other and explore, ponder, wonder, marvel about our amazing local sea life. The Centre hopes to encourage and even spawn budding marine biologists, dedicated citizen scientists, and most importantly, an educated community that actively cares about our oceans.”
– Linda Sonntag, Founder and Board Member
