Happy Easter! In between church and/or family gatherings, head over to a couple of these fun activities for the weekend!
Bring your family down for an “eggs-sighting” time learning about animals that lay eggs. Help us find sea turtle eggs scattered throughout the aquarium or discover what it takes to build a turtle nest. And of course, there will be up-close encounters with the egg-layers of the natural world.
When: Saturday, March 31 | 10am – 2pm
Where: Living Coast Discovery Center | 1000 Gunpowder Point Dr, Chula Vista, CA 91910
