Tuesday, January 17

In celebration of Heal the Bay’s 30 years of work for a healthy ocean, Heal the Bay's Santa Monica Pier Aquarium is holding a Family Birthday Bash from 12:30 to 5:00 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 28th that includes free admission to an action-packed afternoon of guest appearances and activities, sponsored by Wells Fargo. Along with the amazing marine life always on exhibit at the marine science center, the Aquarium will unveil "Catch of the Day," a new exhibit of some of the most diminutive of local species – and provide cameras and microscopes to examine these tiny creatures. Representing the terrestrial species of the region, a barn owl, kestrel, skunk and opossum will also join the party, courtesy the Nature of Wildworks Wildlife Center of Topanga. The Los Angeles Public Library’s Store on Wheels will be parked just outside. For the remainder of 2015, Well Fargo’s generous birthday present to Heal the Bay will allow Aquarium visitors free admission the first Wednesday of the month, beginning March 4th.
