Join First 5 LA and Heal the Bay for a Day at the Beach, Beach Clean Up and Aquarium Visit!

First 5 LA is partnering with Heal the Bay and The Santa Monica Pier Aquarium to host a Beach Clean-up and a free visit to The Santa Monica Pier Aquarium starting at 10:30 am on Saturday, August 5, 2017.

Keeping the beautiful beaches of Los Angeles County safe and clean is a responsibility shared by everyone. And everyone can have an impact on creating healthy, thriving environments for families and children. This summer, First 5 LA invites parents, caregivers, and children to have fun learning about and helping the environment by taking part in a special event that includes a day at the beach, beach clean-up and a free visit to the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium.

The day kicks off at 10:30 am at the Santa Monica Pier, and will feature special presentations, information and supplies to clean the beach, and lots of fun giveaways, activities, and refreshments for parents and children. Free admission to the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium will follow in the afternoon and will introduce families to the amazing animals that call the Bay home, with exhibits of more than 100 local species and hands-on activities for children. There will also be a book reading at 2 pm with a special appearance by Potter the Otter!
