As the nonprofit partner to the St. Louis Aquarium at Union Station, the Aquarium Foundation engages the community through access and education programs, serving as the region’s recognized voice for water stewardship.
These four Core Initiatives serve as the cornerstone of our education and community outreach programs.
See our upcoming events and find out where you can visit us in the upcoming months.
Help us provide free Aquarium visits to underserved children, and/or put your special touch on the new St. Louis Aquarium with your own commemorative fish.
We invite you to help us “fill our classroom” with supplies for our education programs! Our programs allow youth to get their hands wet while thinking critically and problem solving real-life water stewardship and conservation issues. Your donations are vital to help us purchase the classroom items that will be used to inspire thousands of youth in our community to learn about the importance of marine biology, STEM education, and our waterways!
Members of our Global Waters and Aquarium Friends Circle receive special recognition and benefits, including annual passes to the St. Louis Aquarium, discounts in the restaurants and gift shops, invitations to exclusive events, a Commemorative Fish and more!
