All volunteers who participate in the Scioto Sweep will be invited to a special celebration of the clean-up at the opening of Unseen Oceans on Saturday, October 19th and to be among the first to visit the exhibition.

About Unseen Oceans
Unseen Oceans will be making its international tour debut at COSI after it completes it successful run at the American Museum of Natural History in New York who created the exhibition.
In Unseen Oceans, visitors will embark on a journey that takes them from the oceans’ sunlit surfaces to their inky depths as they discover the latest ocean science and encounter the researchers and technologies powering exploration today. Learning about our oceans helps foster a greater understanding of their importance and how we must all work together to care for them.
COSI’s Scioto Sweep and Unseen Oceans is supported by The Huntington Bank who is proud to be part of this effort to inform, inspire and educate the community on the importance of protecting the natural world.
