Animal Room Open Saturdays Only: Beginning the first week in September, the Randall Museum live animal exhibit at the Mission Arts Center will no longer be open on weekdays, only on Saturdays from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.
Oceans cover over 75% of our planet and contain the greatest diversity of life on earth. On view are the California coast habitats of salt marsh, sandy beach, rocky shores and bay waters. See mussels, urchins, monkeyface prickleback, and many more animals you may never have heard of. With some help from our friends of The Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary enjoy deep-water footage from NOAA’s submersibles. Interact with ocean plankton with artist Gene Felice’s piece on the importance of these microscopic powerhouses. Dive into still more ocean topics at our study station and maybe even touch a sea star!
