Learn all about the habitats and inhabitants of the Santa Monica Bay this Saturday and Sunday (July 28 and 29) during Ocean Appreciation weekend at Heal the Bay’s Santa Monica Pier Aquarium.
The marine education center will be open from 12:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. both days.
This annual tribute to the ocean – and celebration of the role it plays in our lives – focuses on the four habitats of the Santa Monica Bay: the sandy bottom, the kelp forest, the rocky shore, and the open ocean.
Through games, arts and crafts projects, and naturalist’s presentations, visitors can explore each of these unique environments while gathering fun facts about the animals that inhabit them.
Entry is a $5 suggested donation; $3 minimum; free for children under 12.
Santa Monica Pier Aquarium is located at 1600 Ocean Front Walk underneath the Santa Monica Pier.
