An exhibition to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Living Coast Discovery Center opened Saturday, with extra animal encounters and presentations.
“Back to Nature” highlights the history of Sweetwater Marsh, including its early Kumeyaay residents and Gunpowder Point, where kelp was harvested to produce gunpowder during World War I.
The new exhibition displayed new animals and interactive exhibits, including the opening of a Native Pollinator Garden, according to the Facebook event.
The exhibit also provides a nostalgic look at the growth and evolution of the center from the 1980s to Saturday.
The center is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily at 1000 Gunpowder Point Drive. Tickets are $16 for visitors 13 years and older, $11 for children 3-12, and free for those 2 and under.
