Celebrate Earth Day With Party for the Planet at Birch Aquarium

Are you ready to Party for the Planet? In honor of Earth Day, Birch Aquarium is hosting a family-friendly event celebrating our ocean planet while highlighting some of the simple steps we all can take to make a difference.

Party for the Planet on Earth Day at Birch Aquarium

The event includes an hourly parade, people-powered music, and interactive stations that show how we can collectively tackle some of our planet’s greatest climate challenges.

Don’t miss the opportunity to contribute to an upcycled kelp art project crafted by Barrio Logan-based fabric artist Sew Loka or to engage with climate communicators from Estudio Planeteando and take in improvisational performances by Imagine Theatre Company.

Witness these components merge into one community climate storytelling experience, connecting your personal ocean stories through art and theater.“Taking care of our ocean planet can be fun,” said Matthew Arrollado, Public Programs Coordinator at Birch Aquarium.

“Our community can be great stewards of the environment every day of the year. We encourage San Diegans to spring into action by making small adjustments in their everyday lives that collectively can have a massive impact on our planet.”

See you there!

Party for the Planet is part of an annual nationwide initiative by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA) and its 220-plus accredited members.

The event is included with the cost of General Admission, which is $24.95 for adults and $19.95 for children ages 3-17. Annual memberships are also available here.

Now, through Labor Day, the aquarium is open from 9 AM to 7 PM on select nights, and advanced reservations are required except for members. Visit here for more information about Party for the Planet.

See you there, San Diego!
