(April 2017) -- Once a year, the Dauphin Island Sea Lab gives the public a closer look at the day to day work of students and scientists. All ages are invited to visit the laboratories, get their hands wet, and discover what it means to be a marine scientist.

For the 20th year, Discovery Day didn't disappoint with a close-up look at plankton, seagrass, brittle stars, polycheates, rays and much more. There was fish printing, book signings, and a chance to add your own touch to our mural. 

Check out the video for a look back at Discovery Day 2017. We hope to see you next year!
