Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History

Organization Mission

Connecting people with nature and science to inspire stewardship of the natural world.

The Big Idea 2023:
School Field Trip Transportation Scholarships

Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History is committed to providing equitable access to our nature and science education field trips for all Santa Cruz County students.

Studies show that students greatly benefit from on-site learning. Our field trips are inspiring and high quality programs where young people learn about local natural history and science while connecting with nature. Not all schools have the transportation resources to participate. Please help ensure that our youth can benefit from this local resource.

The programs and resources offered by the Museum boost my confidence (and lower my stress levels!) because they are well-vetted, expertly prepared, and researched.
