Aquarirum of the BAYOn Saturday, December 15 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., join Aquarium of the Bay, for Rejoice, Reuse, Recycle!

This is a GREAT green holiday craft event at a spectacular local Aquarium. This beautiful aquarium is a wonderful place to learn, explore and enjoy the ocean and the many ocean animals.

Aquarium of the Bay will be partnering with SCRAP, a non-profit creative reuse center who will donate material for guests to make their own green holiday crafts.

  • Create your own holiday centerpieces made out of recycled and reusable materials.
  • Chat with Aquarium naturalists for even more ideas on how to be green and reduce your impact during the holidays.
  • Artist Nicole Chan will be on site creating a five foot sculpture made from recycled plastic bags and undaria (an invasive kelp species) pulled out of the bay.
  • Everyone that creates a piece during the event will receive a 20% discount in the Aquarium’s retail shop.

Everyone can do their part to help reduce the amount of waste produced during the holidays. Whether you’re trying to save green in your wallet or just trying to be green this holiday season, Aquarium of the Bay is your go-to resource on how to have a greener holiday.
