Marimo Moss Ball Aquarium Workshop for Teens
In honor of the Marimo Matsuri Festival, an annual Japanese festival that takes place in early October and is hosted by the Ainu people in Hokkaidō, we are celebrating nature and promoting environmental conservation and education with a Marimo Moss Ball Aquarium Workshop.
Marimo (also known as "Japanese Moss Balls"), are a unique species of algae native to Lake Akan in Hokkaido, Japan. They are a source of fascination in Japan, where they are popularly kept as home or office “pets” and for good luck.
Craft your very own whimsical yet practical aquatic ecosystem. Discover just how simple it is to build and maintain your new Marimo Moss Ball Aquarium. These aquariums will make the perfect plant “pet,” as minimal care is needed; they thrive on indirect sunlight and a monthly water change! Make one for yourself or make one as a gift for a friend! All materials are included and you will create and take home your very own aquarium.
For ages 12-18.
No registration necessary – Just drop in!
Spots are limited to first 20 students.
