Spring Forward: A Science Soiree
Thursday, April 22, 2021
Main event: 7-8 pm
Afterparty feat. Chromeo: 8 pm

This year, continue your Earth Day celebration after sundown at Spring Forward: A Science Soiree, a virtual event connecting the Academy’s brightest minds with its most passionate supporters.

In one inspiring evening, be transported to Earth’s deepest coral reefs, remote tropical archipelagos, and across California as our scientists and special guests introduce the Academy’s bold new initiatives aimed at fostering a natural world that is healthier, more resilient, and wilder each year.

Along with a unique at-home experience for you and your guests during the main event, you’re also invited to a virtual afterparty immediately following, featuring live musical entertainment by electro-funk innovators Chromeo (DJ set). (Tickets to the afterparty are included with your Spring Forward tickets.)

We can’t wait to celebrate this season of emergence, growth, and hope together—and invite you to take part in our path forward.

Watch the event trailer.
