World Oceans Day is June 8–and the Alaska Sealife Center is hosting a celebration. Only 100 tickets wil be sold–so plan now to attend!

a. Exhibits: Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute showcases the best examples of this wild, natural and sustainable food choice. Also, North to the Future Arctic Theater will have an array of films highlighting the north Pacific and the arctic.

b. Artwork: Two new art sculptures will be presented at World Oceans Day: “Salmon” by Brad Hughes and “Bull Kelp” by Lisa Rinkey. Check out the steel sculptures in front of the center.

c. Munchies. Three of Seward’s best chefs will set up their own Kitchen Stadium for an appetizer cook-off: Monica Cooper of Alaskan Dermish Desserts, Kevin Lane or the Alaska Culinary Academy and Erik Slater of the Seward Windsong Lodge.

d. Music: Don’t miss this: Home-town hero Marian Call will perform. Ask her about her new CD, “Something Fierce”!

Only 100 tickets will be sold. They’re $20 each. Check online or call Lexie Mizeras: (907)644-6717.

While you’re in Seward, don’t miss the chance to sail on one of Major Marine‘s Glacier and Wildlife cruises. My favorite is the National Park Cruise, which goes all the way out to Aialik Glacier. You’ll see the big ice, lots of marine mammals like seals, sea lions and an occasional whale–plus all sorts of other critters: eagles, puffins, Dall’s Porpoise–the works! Check online or call toll-free 800-764-7300. In Anchorage, call 907-274-7300 .
