Join us for a tour of VIMS! During this 2-hour guided tour you will receive an overview of VIMS, a guided tour of our Visitors Center, and you will visit two of our research laboratories where you will talk with our scientists. On August 9, we will be visiting a lab that studies zooplankton (animals that drift in ocean currents) from the Chesapeake Bay to Antarctica and the Environmental Chemistry lab. In the Zooplankton Ecology lab you'll learn about research conducted around the world to understand the animals that form the base of the food chain in the ocean. In the Environmental Chemistry lab you'll learn about VIMS' research on microplastics and other chemical contaminants in our waters. 

Tours of VIMS are designed for adults. Children must be at least 9 years old to attend. Space is limited and registration must be completed at least two days in advance. 

Registration for this event is closed. Please join us for one of our other public tours this summer.
