Monterey, California: Historic Cannery Row and John Steinbeck Walking Tour
Bechtel Family Center for Ocean Education and Leadership
Just past Cooper’s do you see the sleek modern cement gray building with walls of glass? Stop next to it.
This $42 million, environmentally sustainable, 25,000 square foot center, is the Bechtel Family Center for Ocean Education and Leadership. Opened in 2019, the Bechtel Education Center expands and enhances the Aquarium’s educational programs by offering free informative programs for teachers and students. The first floor is open to the public so go on in if you have the time.
When you're ready, cross Hoffman and continue walking straight along the Monterey Coastal Trail.
