Get in the spirit of the season and celebrate Halloween and Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) at Heal the Bay Aquarium with a “fintastic” Halloween and Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration. The Aquarium, located beach level of the Santa Monica Pier, has spooky, family-friendly activities planned both days.

Visit our Dorothy Green Room for our new, expanded glow-in-the-dark deep-sea experience, tip toe (if you dare!) through our marine animal artifact graveyard and create colorful Día de los Muertos crafts and masks. Face painting and spooky story times are scheduled throughout the weekend as well.

All ghosts and goblins are invited to join a 3pm parade on Sunday (October 27). Stepping off in front of the Aquarium, the procession will make its way along the Pier to trick-or-treat from Pier businesses.

Saturday, Oct. 26 @ 2pm: Scary Story Time
Sunday, Oct. 27 @ 3pm: Santa Monica Pier Costume Parade & Trick-or-Treat

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.
