I had a lovely first visit as a new member to the California Academy of Sciences just near my house in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. Hip hop DJ Dan the Automator was performing for the weekly Thursday NightLife event 6-10pm. I really enjoyed the warm Rainforests of the World, Land of Lemurs, Ostrich, Galapagos, Jellyfish, Octopus, and Mountain Gorilla exhibits. The event was extremely popular and I think the organization does a phenomenal job getting the community involved in their work. They also make a killer Ginger Snap Mojito!
The California Academy of Sciences is a scientific institution committed to leading–edge research around the world and educational outreach close to home. Their mission—to explore, explain and protect the natural world—extends to every corner of the institution. Innovative exhibits will engage and inspire visitors of every age.
