Grunion Runs with Birch Aquarium at Scripps

Get ready for a true Southern California experience! Observe hundreds of small silver fish called grunion ride the waves onto La Jolla beaches to spawn. Our naturalists will highlight the fascinating lives of these mysterious fish, help you hatch grunion eggs before your eyes, and then lead you to the beach to search for grunion in the wild.

Prepare for cool, wet conditions and bring a flashlight.

Minors must attend with a paid adult, for ages 6+. Please note, Grunion Runs do not meet at Birch Aquarium.

Mandy Harvey

Jul 22, 2017

Mandy Harvey is an award winning singer, songwriter and motivational speaker who just happens to have, as she puts it, "an invisible disability."

A Vocal Music Education major at Colorado State University, Mandy lost her residual hearing in 2006-2007 at age eighteen due to a connective tissue disorder that affected her nerves. After leaving the music program, she pursued several career options but eventually found her way back to music. She quickly became a regular performer at various venues and has released three albums. Though her hearing loss is profound, her timing and pitch are perfect and her passion is tremendous.
