In light of COVID-19 the Redwood Discovery Museum is embracing social distancing to keep our community safe. In lieu of a community gathering to jump into the bay we are holding the event online. The 19th Annual Perilous Plunge will be known this year as Post a Plunge! That is right you can still plunge but this time it can be done at home. We are asking you to take a video or picture of yourself plunging.
Plunging the kitchen sink
Plunging a french press
Plunging your hand into your pockets
Plunge into your swimming pool or hot tub
Please remember to stay safe while plunging and keep all photos/videos children's museum friendly so we can share them to our social media.
We will be awarding trophies for the following:
Rookie of the Year
Best Plunge- get creative!
Best Costume- yes you can still plunge in your costume!
The Perilous Plunge, our annual fundraiser, is critical to the sustainability of the Redwood Discovery Museum and is how we set our annual operating budget for the organization. We know that you have been hard at work raising funds and encouraging friends to plunge with you. We want to thank you for your our dedication; it is both humbling and inspiring.
We will be available to collect your remaining pledges and hand out t-shirts on March 21st from 8:00am to 12:00pm in the Museum’s parking lot on the corner of 6th and G.

Yes! Perilous Plunge—a community-wide event in support of the Discovery Museum’s mission to promote hands-on learning and exploration for our region’s youth.
The Redwood Discovery Museum is more than a Museum. It’s a children’s summer camp, an outdoor education facility, a teacher resource, a field trip destination, a playgroup host, a place to play on rainy days, an experience to enjoy with your child, and so much more.
The community’s investment in The Perilous Plunge enables us to sustain vital programs serving over 14,000 children annually.
Please note if you are supporting a Plunger you will choose their name from a list during checkout. Thank you!
