Join us for volunteer tidepool collecting on Monday, May 7th at 7am. Wake with sun the and meet us at the Hook (where 41st Street ends at the ocean) to gather intertidal creatures for our Tidepool Exhibit at the Museum.

Saddle up and don your helmet because next week is Bike to Work Week! Throughout the week, local businesses will offer free treats for bicycle commuters. This is a great way to show your commitment to being a steward of the natural world (and get in shape too)! Learn more about Bike to Work Week here in Santa Cruz.
