The Rainforest Festival took place in Petersburg recently and with it was the annual Diving for Science event for kids.
The pouring rain didn’t seem to bother the children and parents who gathered on the state float plane dock. Several gray totes were placed on the dock filled with sea creatures of all sorts—everything from sea urchins to crabs to sea stars.
