The third-annual L.A. regional Rube Goldberg contest will return to Santa Monica Pier on March 12 as part of a daylong S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) event hosted by Heal the Bay and Santa Monica Pier and presented by sponsor Time Warner Cable’s Connect a Million Minds.
Join Heal the Bay's Aquarium Volunteer Manager/Bird Enthusiast, Micky Kesterson, for a walk and conversation about the winter beach birds of Santa Monica. We'll meet at the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium, walk on the pier, then along the beach to the Pico-Kenter storm drain. It's a good idea to wear boots. If you have your own binoculars, you'll enjoy having them. If not, we have a few to share. THIS EVENT WILL HAPPEN RAIN OR SHINE. Micky says rainy days just mean less people and MORE BIRDS!
Happy 2016 Heal the Bay members! Looking for something interesting and educational to do this month?
We have all been hearing about the drought and being urged to take shorter showers and water less. What about longer term solutions? Join Heal the Bay's Water Education Specialist, Nancy Shrodes, for a tour and conversation about the future of L.A. water and it's connection to a healthier city and Bay. You are already recycling paper and soda cans, why not water? Come see how it's being done at West Basin!
Celebrate the amazing animals and habitats of the Santa Monica Bay and learn more about the important conservation of the underwater treasures just off our coast. Special craft projects, face painting and a lively puppet show telling the story of Marine Protected Areas are featured, and included with admission to the Aquarium.
