LMS’ most recent addition to environmental education is a Sea Life Centre built in 2016. It is a floating gazebo on a 20′ x 20′ dock surrounded by a viewing shelf and fence that displays photographs with descriptive sea life identification.

The Centre is a special place where touch tanks showcase our sea life and provide hands-on experiences that involve divers, marine biologists, and students from our Ladysmith and Stz’uminus communities. The viewing section in the middle of the floor also provides the perfect opportunity to introduce people to the magic and wonder of the sea life of Ladysmith Harbour.

Our Sea Life program teaches visitors of all ages about sea life, inspires them to protect it and allows them to explore how sea life and oceans contribute to all of our lives.
