SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The Maritime Museum is preparing for a free event called Earth Day on the Bay.

The first annual Earth Day on the Bay will take place at and around the Maritime Museum of San Diego on April 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There is no charge to attend Earth Day on the Bay, and the Museum will be open to all who wish to attend without charge. Opportunities to go on a bay cruise or sailing adventure with a naturalist aboard will be available for a nominal charge.
