Sep 30: Behind the Scenes: Sustainability at The Nat

September 30 | 5:30 – 7 PM | San Diego Natural History Museum

San Diego EMP’s 2019 theme is the year of “Big I.D.E.A.S!” This encompasses Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Sustainability. EMP’s September program focuses on the “S.” As many local organizations work to “go green” for environmental and economic reasons, learn about how the San Diego Natural History Museum (The Nat) is working to “go even greener” with their current operations.

Join Rubi Baricuatro, Manager at the Balboa Park Cultural Partnership Sustainability Program, and Michael Field, Director of Experience Design at The Nat, as they guide you through a unique behind-the-scenes tour that will shed some “energy efficient light” on the important work of sustainability in museums!

This tour is free to attend, but registration is required.
