Full Moon Pier Walk with Birch Aquarium


A warm night lit by a full moon is the perfect time to explore one of La Jolla’s most prominent landmarks. The Ellen Browning Scripps Memorial Pier, normally closed to the public, is used by scientists, students, and aquarium staff for a variety of research projects. It also serves as a platform to collect local marine life and deploy small boats and oceanographic instruments. During this program you will discover the 100-year history of pier-based data collection at Scripps while walking along the Scripps Pier on an exclusive moonlit tour. Collect plankton, learn about bioluminescent organisms, and explore current research while engaging in hands-on activities. Tickets are $35 for the Public and $30 for Birch Aquarium Members. For Ages 9 and up. Minors must be accompanied by a paid adult. Please note: Pier Walks to do not meet at Birch Aquarium at Scripps. Pre-purchase is required. Pier Walks run June through October. See our website for full schedule. Proceeds support exhibits and educational programming at Birch Aquarium at Scripps. To purchase tickets or for more information, email or call 858-534-7336. For a sneak peek at the view from the Scripps Pier, see the Scripps Oceanography Pier Cam.
