Birch Aquarium Takeover

At Birch Aquarium at Scripps, we inspire curiosity  by educating the public through thought-provoking exhibits, hands-on displays, and engaging classes taught by expert instructors.  It is our mission to educate the next generation of ocean stewards by offering hands-on programs from the beach, where students explore sandy habitats and learn about the importance of marine reserves, to our Discovery Lab classrooms, where pre-k through college students dive deeper into the fascinating ocean world. These experiences create lifelong memories and inspire ocean advocacy. We could not do this without your support.  


Why support Birch Aquarium?

In 2017 Birch Aquarium:

  • Engaged scientists from across Scripps Institution of Oceanography in more than 170 outreach initiatives to benefit the San Diego community

  • Proudly served a record 56,449 Pre-K-12 students through innovative programming

  • Provided 115 teachers with professional development workshops, connecting their classroom lessons with current Scripps research

Thanks to friends like you, Birch Aquarium is able to fulfill our mission to provide ocean science education, interpret Scripps Oceanography research, and promote ocean conservation. With your help we will continue to inspire the next generation of young scientists and nurture ocean stewards of all ages. Thank you for making your gift.
