Earth Day Aquarium Celebration
April 20 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
For Heal the Bay, every day is Earth Day, but April is extra special because communities from around the world come together to celebrate and help heal our planet. Our Aquarium’s Earth Day celebration runs from 11:00 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 20. A presentation in the Dorothy Green Room at 1 p.m., “Who Pollutes? is a lively lesson for all ages – and is repeated at 3 p.m.
Join us at 2 p.m. for an Earth Day themed Story Time and live animal presentation, and visitors who walk to the west end of the Pier will find a wildlife station, staffed and stocked with binoculars and bird identification guides. Face painting, an eco-themed crafts station and short films will round out the presentations in the Aquarium.

Wanna roll up your sleeves and become a Heal the Bay Volunteer? We have five distinct volunteer programs that we offer. Each program has a specific training associated with it, as well as its own volunteer roles. Aquarium – Aquarium volunteers work at our Santa Monica Pier Aquarium. They support various public programs from interpreting at touch tanks to ensuring the success of private events. They also attend outreach events and represent Heal the Bay all over Los Angeles. Beach – Beach Captain volunteers support our large Nothin’ But Sand beach cleanups that occur every third Saturday of the month. They are also involved in other beach programs like Suits on the Sand, and have the opportunity to attend Coastal Cleanup Day Site Captain training. Outreach – These volunteers take Heal the Bay knowledge all over Los Angeles. Speakers Bureau volunteers present in classrooms, in business meetings, at beach cleanups, festivals and more. Community Science – MPA Watch Volunteers survey marine protected areas (MPAs) in Malibu and Palos Verdes. They monitor, collect data, and get to walk along some of California’s most stunning beaches. Youth – Middle and high school students register their school club with Club Heal the Bay to be part of a larger environmental advocacy community. In return, clubs receive recognition and rewards for their civic action projects. To get started as a Heal the Bay volunteer, attend a Volunteer Orientation.
