Take a night walk under the full moon and explore one of La Jolla's most prominent landmarks—the Scripps Pier.
Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego is bringing back their Full Moon walks this summer. You can take a tour of the Ellen Browning Scripps Memorial Pier, which is typically closed to the public. The pier 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 tour of the Scripps Oceanography campus is included in this jam-packed night of fun and exploration.
