In this unique viewing of the Heal the Bay Aquarium, guests will be able to view various marine animals that utilize light to communicate, camouflage, or attract their next meal. From fluorescing sharks to bioluminescent bacteria, we welcome you into the dark to discover how light is used by the animals of our local Bay.

We’ll begin the night’s festivities with an introduction to the Aquarium and the topic of light in the ocean. Immediately after, the aquarium will go dark and guests will be free to mingle through staff-guided stations, featuring an animal and its unique adaptation to using light.

Our glowing theme will extend to the realm of libations as well! Each 21+ adult guest will receive one complimentary drink ticket to choose from a selection of glow-themed cocktails (or mocktails). Additional drinks will be available to purchase at the cash bar.

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 Heal the Bay Aquarium under the Santa Monica Pier. 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 cleanup volunteers support our Adopt-A-Beach and Coastal Cleanup Day programs. Our Beach Captain volunteers support Nothin’ But Sand public beach cleanups and Suits on the Sand private cleanups, 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 both virtually and in-person in classrooms, 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.
