Birch Aquarium 2018 Green Flash Lineup

The quintessential Southern California summer concert series includes Wild Child, The FIXX, Steve Poltz, Pine Mountain Logs with Venice and more.

Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego transforms its Tide Pool Plaza into an outdoor music venue unlike any other for The Green Flash Concert Series. These lively summer concerts, presented in partnership with 101. 5 KGB and Belly Up Entertainment, provide the ultimate Southern California music experience while supporting a good cause.

Named for the rare optical phenomenon caused by the refraction of light as the sun sets on the horizon — which is often visible during the concerts — the Green Flash concert series combines live music with panoramic ocean views, stunning sunsets and admission to Birch Aquarium.

The lineup for the 13th annual Green Flash Summer Concert Series was announced today:

Wednesday, May 16
Wild Child

Wednesday, June 20
Steve Poltz

Wednesday, July 18
The FIXX

Season passes are also available for $145 for members, $160 for the general public. For the best view in the house, upstairs VIP Deck tickets are also available for $150 per person per show and include catered food and beverage. Admission includes the concert as well as entrance to all aquarium exhibits and free parking.

BAM! POW! SPLASH? Birch Aquarium to Launch Comic Book-Inspired Exhibit

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, it’s a … Giant Tube Worm? On June 29, Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego is launching Oddities: Hidden Heroes of the Scripps Collections, a comic book-inspired exhibit that highlights the astonishing adaptations (aka super powers) of ocean species.

Oddities is created in partnership with the team from the Scripps Oceanographic Collections, where millions of specimens allow scientists to understand some of the amazing adaptations marine creatures have developed to survive.  From super vision and invisibility to protective armor and the ability to create electricity to zap prey, real marine creatures do amazing things every day that stretch even the wildest imagination.

“I don’t think an exhibit like this would be possible anywhere else,” said Harry Helling, executive director of Birch Aquarium.  “It’s truly a unique collaboration between the researchers of the Scripps Collections and the talented Exhibits and Education teams here at Birch Aquarium. Our guests are in for a real treat!”

The interactive exhibit will include examples of some of the most unique creatures from all depths and highlight how they have inspired everything from cinema and pop culture to medicine and engineering. Guests will learn what it takes to collect scientific samples and have the opportunity to test out some of these unique adaptations through creature cosplay.

"We're excited to showcase some of the wonderful specimens from the Collections and to tell their stories in this playful, engaging way. By coming face-to-face with unusual specimens, visitors will get to see how our Collections empower real discoveries in science and education every day,” said Charlotte Seid, manager of Scripps’ Benthic Invertebrate Collection.

Oddities opens June 29 and will be on display through Spring 2019. The exhibit replaces the Mexican Seas and Feeling the Heat exhibits. Oddities is included in aquarium admission, which is $18.50 for adults and $14 for children. Annual memberships are also available. Visit the Birch Aquarium website for more details.
