Continuing Walter Munk’s Legacy

Continuing Walter Munk’s Legacy

of daring exploration and discovery through scientific research, education and ocean conservation.


People should treat the ocean
like we do anything else that we care about,
with consideration, with care, and affection.
For that, we must educate.

JOIN US OCTOBER 15 – WALTER MUNK DAY

THE MAP® of the Grand Canyons of La Jolla is the result of our community
coming together
to make this unique educational plaza a reality.

THE MAP® of the Grand Canyons of La Jolla opened on October 19, 2020 in honor of Walter Munk’s enduring legacy of exploration and discovery.  The opening date was selected to commemorate what would have been Walter’s 103rd birthday. THE MAP®, now open to the public at Kellogg Park in La Jolla Shores, is the largest LithoMosaic in the world.
