NorCal MINIs' Marin Mammal Center Tour & Run

On Saturday, August 21, 2010, NorCal MINIs will get a tour and behind the scenes look at the operation of the Marine Mammal Center. Our day will start at 8:30 a.m. when we meet up for a short Marin County MINI Run (meet up location to be announced) and, then, out to the Marine Mammal Center by 10:00 a.m. for a one hour guided tour of the Center's hospital. You will see marine mammal patients, visit the "fish kitchen," chartroom, and laboratory, and witness a rescue demonstration.

 After the tour we will  head to the British pub The Pelican Inn for lunch.


Tickets are $15.00/person.

Please use the Paypal Button To Pay For Your Tickets.

The Center has an urgent need for used towels. Please bring all those old ones (even the ratty ones) you can't use to dry your car and help the Center rehab a marine mammal.

This event is open to the entire MINI community.
