A warm night lit by a full moon is the perfect time to explore one of La Jolla’s most prominent landmarks. The Ellen Browning Scripps Memorial Pier, normally closed to the public, is used by scientists, students and aquarium staff for a variety of research projects. Attendees can discover the 100-year history of pier-based data collection at Scripps while strolling along the Scripps Pier on an exclusive moonlit tour. Collect plankton, learn about bioluminescent organisms and explore current research, while engaging in hands-on activities.
