Underwater Parks Day


Learn about and explore our local Dana Point State Marine Conservation Area and understand the importance of protected areas such as this.  Guided tidepool hikes, sea urchin dissections and other activities will highlight this amazing environment and animals that live just feet from our door. 

The day is a coordinated event by marine science centers throughout Southern California to educate the public about the statewide network of Marine Protected and Conservation Areas and explain the need for these “underwater parks.” 

Activities are included with general weekend admission.
