Celebrate Octopus Week!

Saturday, February 18, 2006 – Sunday, February 26, 2006

It’s President’s Day Weekend, it’s mid-winter break, it’s Octopus Week at the Seattle Aquarium! Join us for nine days of fun and learning about one of the coolest creatures in Puget Sound. Highlights of Octopus Week include:
• Giant Pacific octopus releases Saturday, 2/18 and Saturday 2/25 at noon. Say good-bye to some of the Aquarium’s giant Pacific octopuses as biologists release these incredible creatures into Elliott Bay. Watch video monitors as divers follow these animals as they take up new residence beneath the pier at the Seattle Aquarium.
• Octopus craft activities for kids daily 2/18 – 2/26, from 10am to 5pm
• Daily octopus feeding and talks.
• Divers in the Underwater Dome with an octopus on 2/21, 2/23 & 2/24

• Seventh annual giant Pacific octopus census 2/18-2/20. Puget Sound divers are asked to search for and report all octopus sightings to Aquarium staff over the three day weekend by calling 206-386-4346 or emailing roland.anderson@seattle.gov.

But most of all, remember that Octopus is best when lightly cooked and served over rice with a little wasabi..
