Earth MONTH Celebration at Heal the Bay Aquarium
April 15, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
At Heal the Bay, every month is Earth Month, but April is extra special because communities from around the world come together to appreciate the great gift that is our “little blue dot” and to help heal our planet.
Come celebrate the wonder of our Earth’s oceans with Heal the Bay Aquarium at our Earth Month jubilee Saturday, April 15, 2023.
The party starts at 11 AM with indoor and outdoor activities throughout the day!
Can’t wait until 11 AM for the fun to begin? Star your day at the Heal the Bay Nothin But Sand Cleanup at Santa Monica Beach. Volunteer your time to keep the California coastline clean, rent headphones to participate in a silent disco while you collect debris, and learn about the importance of environmental conservation on the sand just a few steps away from the Heal the Bay Aquarium. Sign up to reserve your bucket!
