Announcing a new Meetup for Urban Adventures!

What: Grunion Run and Bonfire

When: Friday, April 30,[masked]:00 PM

Where:
Cabrillo Marine Aquarium
3720 Stephen M. White Drive
San Pedro, CA 90731

The grunions are back!

Every year, from late March to August, at very high tides the grunion swim up on the beach to spawn! Literally thousands of them slither and flop around trying to get lucky, while the females dig a hole in the sand and try to lure the best suitors.



The Cabrillo Marine Aquarium will conduct an educational program at 8PM, followed by a guided observation tour at the beach. We encourage you to come out early and learn about the interesting mating rituals and growth of this curious fish. Entry is $5.

If you want to skip the educational part and just witness the nitty gritty, then come out, meet us at the bonfire on the sand and have a refreshing beverage or two while we wait for the fish to get in the mood. We'll arrive close to 7PM to stake out a good firepit. Feel free to show up anytime after that.


    Please bring
  • warm clothing
  • flashlights
  • cameras and tripods
  • camping/folding chairs
  • drinks to share and/or a bundle of firewood
  • your incognito cup or container of choice (coffee mug, starbucks style cup and lid, gatorade bottle, etc...)
  • some grub to share


Parking is $1 per hour, $9 maximum. There is also free parking in the surrounding streets, however, it is scarce so get there early if you want it for free.

Parking in the lot closes at 11:00 PM, and the beach closes at midnight.
