CHULA VISTA (CBS 8) -It's the jewel of the South Bay. Now it's in danger of closing its doors forever.

The Living Coast Discovery Center in Chula Vista says it will have to close its doors for good, unless it can come up with the money to run for another year.

The center announced Tuesday that because of severe budget shortfalls, it will close to the public starting October 28 to prepare for a complete and permanent shut down at the end of the year.

The center needs to raise $200,000 by October 28 to remain open, and there are ways you can help.
