Changing Tides: A Historic Tour of Santa Cruz Coastal Lagoons Sign up today for this tour guided by local historian Norman Poitevin. How have our urban coastal lagoons changed with the development of Santa Cruz? Join us on a tour through time of three neighborhood tidal lagoons. We’ll begin at the Museum’s new Coastal Lagoons exhibit, then rendezvous at historic Woods Lagoon where Arana Creek mixes with the sea. Our guide will help us visualize the community that surrounded this watershed long ago. Next stop, the Live Oak library on Corcoran Lagoon where we will hear fascinating stories from the past and compare period photographs to the present landscape. Finally, we’ll walk along Moran Lake Park (actually a lagoon) as we link past and present. November 12, 2011 | 9:00am – Noon, COST: $10 members/ $15 general

Sea Odyssey This week Museum staff took a trip on the O’Neil Sea Odyssey. They had a blast visiting our neighbors in the harbor to learn more about their environmental education programs. This is one of many of great opportunities for local students to get out and connect with nature.
Our very first Sandhills class presentation also happened this week. Our staff is getting ready to bring 7th graders out to Scotts Valley to explore this very unique habitat while learning about geology and fossils…. stay tuned for updates!
