Learn all about the habitats and inhabitants of the Santa Monica Bay during Ocean Appreciation weekend at Heal the Bay’s Santa Monica Pier Aquarium.

Games, arts and crafts projects, naturalists’ presentations and hands-on exploration let visitors discover the sandy bottom, rocky shore, kelp forest and open ocean, and meet the animals that inhabit them.

A face-painting station and a photo booth will be on-going both days.

Catch a puppet show at 1:30 pm and a naturalist’s talk at 2:30 pm both days.

Saturday story time with our ace teller of tales begins at 3:30 pm and on Sunday, a feeding at the shark exhibit starts at 3:30 pm.

Children 12 and under are free; all others are a $5 suggested donation or a $3 minimum.
