Our local wharf aquarium, Aquarium of the Bay, is opening three new permanent exhibits this weekend. Join them for the celebration! What's new? A Jellies exhibit, Giant Pacific Octopus exhibit and PG&E Bay Lab (an interactive climate change exhibit featuring land animals for the first time in the Aquarium’s history). While the Jellies and Octopi are two visitor favorites, the PG&E Bay Lab will introduce animals ranging from Blue Tongued Skinks to Pink Toed Tarantulas.
As for the Jellies exhibit, you can look forward to a 725-gallon cylinder tank full of moon jellies and a 740-gallon tank showcasing the graceful and beautiful brown sea nettles.
For the Giant Pacific Octopus exhibit, get cameras ready for an observation bubble where kids can pop up inside the tank.
For the grand opening, don't miss the live musical performances by the Banana Slug String Band in the Aquarium’s Farallon Room, at 11:30am and 1:30pm. Also, the interpretive naturalists will lead fun activities for the kids.
