Annual Report

We are proud to share with you the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History’s Annual Report for the period July 1, 2016-June 30, 2017. Since our fiscal separation from the City of Santa Cruz in 2009, and particularly during the past two years, we have been hard at work building a more sustainable, thriving organization by strengthening our operations, improving our visitor experiences, and raising our profile in the community. As you will see in this report, it has been a busy and successful year in terms of programming, attendance, and community involvement—all thanks to your participation and financial support.

As a community-funded museum, we depend on supporters like you to help fulfill the Museum’s mission of connecting our visitors with the unique natural history of our region. Thank you for believing in us!
