Manhattan Beach Roundhouse Aquarium Repens

With a more than $4-million donation from the Harrison Greenberg Foundation, the Roundhouse Aquarium reopens at the end of the pier in Manhattan Beach on Monday, Nov. 5, 2018. The aquarium, which was completely remodeled with new tanks and fish species, will be open Monday-Friday 2-5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Photo by Scott Varley, Daily Breeze/SCNG)

Earth Day will be coming to the Manhattan Beach Roundhouse Aquarium from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 13.

Families are invited to come enjoy Earth Day activities including: bookmark coloring, decoration of an earth ornament, a temporary tattoo station and a chance to win prizes, according to Roundhouse staff.

A $5 donation will earn aquarium-goers a wristband to partake in the fun.

The contributions will go to help sustain the nonprofit aquarium, which is free to the public.

The educational facility, which was recently renovated in 2018, features viewing and touch tanks, serving more than 15,000 students a year.

“Everyone should visit the beautiful new aquarium, an icon in Manhattan Beach, now known as the ‘smallest high tech aquarium in the world!’” said Janet Winter, CEO of International Cosmetics, which is sponsoring the Earth Day event.
