Cabrillo High School has long stood out for having its own aquarium.
On Wednesday, the Lompoc aquarium reopened with the largest exhibit in its history, the Tidepool Interactive Exhibit.
And the aquarium continues to feature marine life varying from jellyfish to sharks.
Special events include Sharktoberfest, set for 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 27. It brings attention to sharks at the aquarium and those in the wild. A highlight is a feeding demonstration.
The award-winning aquarium began as a school club in a classroom, according to the high school’s website. The collaboration between a teacher and students grew into an effort among hundreds of students, teachers, school district staff and members of the business community.
The director is Greg Eisen. Advisers are Michelle Poquette, Jennifer Mason and Chris Ladwig.
The aquarium is at 4350 Constellation Road.
