Monterey Bay Aquarium and Jack Johnson

Join us as we celebrate our 30th Anniversary and honor musician and philanthropist Jack Johnson.

The highlight of this intimate evening will be a conversation between Jack and Wallace J. Nichols, a scientist and author, about their personal commitments to ocean health and sustainability. Executive Director Julie Packard will also speak about the Aquarium's 30 years of ocean conservation leadership and present Jack with the inaugural Paul Walker Ocean Leadership Award.

Hawaii Chef Ed Kenney will create a delectable menu inspired by the islands, made with local, sustainable ingredients...and aloha.
