In January, the South Shore Natural Science Center in Norwell will exhibit the work of Kingston photographer Mark Grimason.  There will be an artist reception on Saturday, January 6, 2018 from 2-5pm in Vine Hall at the Science Center.  The reception is free and open to all, and refreshments will be served.  The exhibit will be on view in Vine Hall through January 27. The South Shore Natural Science Center, 48 Jacobs Lane, is open daily 9am-5pm.


A 1977 graduate of Roger Williams University in Bristol, RI, Mark has been a resident of Kingston, MA for 34 years.  True to his love of wildlife and the environment, he is a member of the Mass Audubon Society and the North and South River Watershed Association.  He has photographed wildlife in and around New England as well as in Yellowstone National Park and the Galapagos Islands.


“I have always been interested in the natural world and viewing wildlife.  Photography gives me another reason to be out there,” says Mark.  “In December 2016, I had the honor and privilege to travel to Tanzania with Sean Carey of Migration Productions, and three other photographers.  We spent two weeks photographing all the major flora and fauna in various national parks and conservation areas.  Please join me in January for a sharing of these images.”

About the South Shore Natural Science Center:

The South Shore Natural Science Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public about the natural and cultural environments of the South Shore. Our mission is to provide natural science experiences that educate, excite, and commit every generation to preserve the environment and to encourage responsible use, stewardship and enjoyment of our natural resources. The South Shore Natural Science Center is located on 30 acres surrounded by 200 acres of town conservation/recreation land consisting of meadows, woodland, and a pond. The Science Center is also home to the EcoZone – an interactive museum featuring live native animals, owl exhibits, Children’s Garden, and 6 interpretive trails. 

The South Shore Natural Science Center was started in 1962 by a group of like-minded individuals, led by Norwell’s Cap’n Bill Vinal (often referred to as the father of nature education), with the goal of providing nature programs to the youth of the south shore.

The group purchased a second-hand school bus, and aptly named it Flora, using it to conduct field trips and nature programs in the woods and ponds around the south shore. Flora was sold a few years later, as the group formed a non-profit organization and set about building the South Shore Natural Science Center into a museum and environmental education center.

Today’s Science Center offers a wide variety of nature programs for children and adults, a summer camp, nature preschool, and is home to the EcoZone exhibit hall, created with the assistance of noted wildlife biologist Jeff Corwin.
