Ohlone Program

Students learn about the culture of the original human inhabitants of Santa Cruz. Through exploration in our native plant garden, exhibits, and artifacts, they see different tools and practices used to survive, and gain understanding of a native culture. In the process of learning about the Ohlone cultural connection to nature, students come to understand that humans are a part of the ecosystem.
