Enjoy one of California’s Hidden wonders on Underwater Parks Day 2014!

Posted on  December 17, 2013

Take a day to appreciate California’s undersea beauty on Underwater Parks Day! California is home to plenty of natural wonders including wildlife you see on land every day. The Golden State also contains a fascinating showcase of nature underneath the ocean. Underwater Parks Day is a way to commemorate this often unnoticed and under appreciated aspect of the state’s park system

 

California has had a leading role in recognizing and protecting the natural ecosystems of the coast. It was the first state in the U.S. to develop marine protected areas statewide. These areas would be given special attention in order to protect and preserve their sensitive ecosystems.

 

In 1999 the MLPA (Marine Life Protection Act) required California to overhaul their treatment of marine protected areas leading to the well kept and extensive “underwater parks” the state enjoys today. Underwater Parks day is a great opportunity to appreciate the effort that has gone into preserving these natural resources.

 

Enjoy Underwater Parks day 2014 at the Ty Warner Sea Center! 

On January 18th, enjoy underwater parks day at the Ty Warner Sea Center. From 10am to 3pm The Center is hosting a special celebration to commemorate Underwater Parks Day that will include interactive activities for people of all ages including feeding demonstrations at 12:20, 1:30 and 2:30pm. Participants will also receive a tote bag and poster while supplies last.

 

For more information about the event, contact Jacki Hunt (jhunt@sbnature2.org) or call 805-962-2526 ext 110.

 

The Ty Warner Sea Center, located at 211 Stearns Wharf Santa Barbara, is owned and operated by the  Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History and its goal is “to inspire a passion for the natural world”. Some of its highlights include a two-story life size model of California Gray whale as well as up close and personal tide pool observation.
