Though there have been several iterations of the Scripps aquarium since the very beginning of Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 1905, the opening of Birch Aquarium on Sept. 16, 1992 took the aquarium to the next level, expanding the reach of the institution’s public outreach arm.
To celebrate this milestone, Birch Aquarium is hosting a family-friendly anniversary event featuring live music, face painting and crafts as well as science interactions highlighting the latest science from Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
Enjoy festive décor and family-friendly activities throughout the aquarium, learn which aquarium residents have been there since the very beginning and contribute to the “Wall of Fishes,” sharing your hopes and dreams for the future of the aquarium. There will also be a scavenger hunt and craft activities. All 25th Anniversary events are included in Birch Aquarium admission and free for members.
Don’t miss special musical performances from local favorites Hullabaloo, Lee Coulter, The Professors, and the Jonny Tarr Trio.
