A warm night lit by a full moon is the perfect time to explore one of La
Jolla?s most prominent landmarks ? the Scripps Pier. Join the Birch Aquarium
at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, this summer to
experience this rare opportunity.

The Ellen Browning Scripps Memorial Pier, usually 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 moonlit walk along the entire 1,090-foot concrete pier, aquarium
naturalists will teach participants about the structure?s history, and guide
them as they dissect a squid, make marine organisms glow in the dark,
collect plankton, observe ocean conditions and study the nocturnal habits of
marine life. A moonlit tour of the Scripps Oceanography campus is included
in this jam-packed night of fun and exploration. Program includes a special
souvenir for each participant.

The Full-Moon Walk on Scripps Pier is open to ages 9 and up. Fee is $20 for
adults and $17 for children under 18. Advance registration is required.
Please call the aquarium at 858/[masked]. For more information, visit
