The California Academy of Sciences houses living collections of marine life, amphibians, birds and more. The building itself is topped with an incredible undulating living roof complete with solar panels, skylights and weather stations. The Steinhart Aquarium contains over 40,000 animals and a coral reef making it one of the best in the world. The steamy Osher Rainforest is home to flourishing tropical vegetation, colorful birds and butterflies. The Morrison Planetarium uses state of the art technology to visually present the cosmos. There’s even an African penguin feeding twice daily.

About Jolee Pink

I am a California-based writer, designer, artist, super foodie and avid traveler. I view travel as a superlative learning experience and have visited nearly 50 countries. As the author of Living Coastal: Inspirations for Entertaining, Decorating and Cooking California Style, I brought together artists and chefs to capture the spirit of San Diego influenced by the Pacific Ocean. The Wabisabi Green lifestyle blog focuses on art, design, food and travel. My colorful ceramic sculpture has received national recognition and is on permanent display at Rady Children’s Hospital. I also design and market a boutique eco-friendly textile line featuring bold modern motifs based on nature, world travels and the southern California coastal lifestyle.
