Can You Be A Little More Pacific?
Let’s take a dive off our coast into our ocean, the Pacific Ocean, and see the wonderful underwater habitats that are right off these shores. We will swim through the diversity of the animals in each habitat and learn about the fastest, largest, and most interesting creatures our ocean has to offer. Additionally, we will explore how trash from our streets gets into these habitats and how it affects our ocean friends. Don’t worry, though. It a-piers we’ll also learn how to save these incredible animals, too!
Fee: $65 per child for non-members, or $60 per child for members.
