HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Heal the Bay is an environmental nonprofit dedicated to making the coastal waters and watersheds of Greater Los Angeles safe, healthy and clean. To fulfill our mission, we use science, education, community action, and advocacy.

DESCRIPTION

Just like the migrating Pacific gray whales, Whale of a Weekend returns to Heal the Bay Aquarium!
Aquarium visitors can feel the heft of a whale rib, check out bristly baleen, and try on a layer of (simulated) whale blubber for warmth. Kids of all ages can have their faces painted and make a whale visor to take home. Learn more interesting facts about these gentle giants at the Aquarium through story time, audio interactives and presentations about the gray whale’s migration habits.

Aquarium naturalists will staff a wildlife observation station at the west end of the Santa Monica Pier. Those who stop by are welcome to spy for whales through binoculars and field guides will identify local birds and marine life.
