Visit Our Coral Reef Exhibit

An exhibit featuring a 210 gallon marine aquarium is in place and proving to be very popular. We are asking help from members and friends to support its maintenance with a donation.  Stop in for the details and make your donation or mail it to: Headwaters Science Center, 413 Beltrami Ave, Bemidji, MN 56601. 

The exhibit is a cooperative venture between HSC and the Northern Minnesota Reef Club. To date, club members have helped determine and order equipment, helped haul the tank into and determine its’ placement in the Center and assisted in fundraising efforts for the project. The Reef Club plans to continue helping with maintenance and donating live corals. It is a nice attraction for the Science Center and hopefully will persuade more people to get into the hobby themselves and, of course, provide a mechanism for learning about and understanding coral reefs as a living community of plants and animals. Thanks to all that participated.
