Aquarium Nets 30 in 30 Grant!

The Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center has been awarded a 30 in 30 Grant of $500 in the Recycling category. Our 30 in 30 Grant program focuses greater resources and attention on organizations and individual localities throughout the Commonwealth and how they are addressing the issues of litter prevention, recycling, waste reduction, beautification and education. These 30 in 30 Grants are made possible by Altria and MeadWestvaco.

The Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center will be recycling on board the ocean-going vessel “Sea Adventures,” bringing visitors face to flipper and fin with our amazing Virginia wildlife. The funds received from our 30 in 30 Grant will be used to install a recycling receptacles in the cabin, on the deck, and on the marine dock. These efforts will help keep waterways clean, and prevent recyclables from going to the landfill.
