Earth Day Celebration
April 22, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm
For Heal the Bay, every day is Earth Day, but in honor of the 47th annual worldwide observance on April 22, we’re celebrating for a solid week!
Heal the Bay’s Nothin’ but Sand clean-up on Saturday, April 15, runs from 10 a.m. to noon on the north side of the Santa Monica Pier. All clean-up participants will be rewarded with free admission to the Aquarium, which opens at 11 a.m. that day.
On the following Saturday, April 22, special activities throughout the day will commemorate the official day to celebrate our planet, during the Aquarium’s regular hours of 12:30 to 5 p.m. Make a biodegradable planter, enjoy a special Earth Day story time at 2 p.m., or visit a wildlife station on the west end of the Pier. At 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., join us for “Who Pollutes?”—an interactive lesson in keeping our waterways and ocean healthy. Best of all, admission to the Aquarium on Earth Day will be FREE courtesy of The Albright!
