Adopt a Hermit Crab - or a Tide Pool

Bring coastal education home for the holidays!

Organized with young learners in mind, these adoption programs deliver color, beauty and coastal science no matter your distance from the coast. As a thank you, we'll also include you in future Touch Tank Tuesday or Distance Learning Lab updates.

Choose Adopt a Hermit Crab and send a customizable eCard with digital downloads for one coloring book page and an adoption certificate for you to send to your recipient.

Upgrade to Adopt a Tide Pool, and we’ll send your honoree a full edition of "All Along the Atlantic", an educational coloring book celebrating nearby coastal life! This collection is thoughtfully assembled by Luna Creative of Wilmington, N.C. Each entry is paired with insightful text by coastal expert Cathy Meyer, allowing you to learn about science, habitats and vital species as you color. Your adoption comes with an eCard to let your loved one know a surprise is on the way, and a year-long membership to keep the family engaged beyond the holidays.

Purchase before Dec. 15.
