Science station takes kids on an OdysSea


Rylee Reoch gets hands-on with a crab at the third annual Autism OdysSea Saturday, April 11.

In addition to the sea life that resides at the Navarre Beach Marine Science Station, visitors were welcomed by rabbits, a python, an owl and even a baby kangaroo Saturday at the third annual Autism OdysSea.

Student volunteers who attend the science station teamed up with representatives from Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park, the Gulf Breeze Zoo, Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge and the Emerald Coast Science Center to show off some of their animal ambassadors.
