New California Academy of Sciences Celebrates Its One Millionth Visitor– March 3, 2009 San Francisco, CA

The new California Academy of Sciences celebrated the arrival of its one millionth visitor on Tuesday. Jared Miller, 8, and his grandfather Ed Miller of Elk Grove, California, were greeted by Academy Executive Director Greg Farrington and a hundred staff members upon entering the front lobby. The surprised grandfather and grandson, who were first-time visitors to the new Academy, received a bag of nature-inspired gifts, a free Academy membership, and refunded admission.
The new California Academy of Sciences opened five months ago on September 27, 2008, after three years of rebuilding and ten years of planning. Attendance has been running 50% above projections, and it hit the 1,000,000 mark over two months faster than expected.
“The level of interest and support from both the local community and tourists has been inspiring,” said Farrington. “This attendance milestone is a testament to the love people have for the Academy, and their commitment to its mission to explore the wonders of life and its sustainability.”
When asked what he was most looking forward to seeing at the Academy, Jared Miller said, “Penguins and snakes!”

As always, join us next week, March 15, for a discussion with our guest Gabe Goldberg.
