Register Now For Aquarium Field Trips

Teaching plankton net use

While many are preparing to take a field trip this spring, Heal the Bay’s Santa Monica Pier Aquarium is ready to help teachers plan their field trips for the 2011-2012 school year. Reservation books open April 1st and if past years are any indication, prime spring field trips spots book up fast and furiously.

School year programs are offered from September 19, 2011 through June 8, 2012, Monday through Friday, two times a day. The morning program runs from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and a second program is offered from 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m.

Reserving space a year ahead of time is easy: either FAX a downloaded field trip reservation form to send to the Aquarium with three dates and times that would work, or call the Aquarium to make a reservation at 310-393-6149, ext. 105. Please leave a voice mail message if no one is available; a faxed form is a request only and does not guarantee a reservation. Reservations are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
