Out and About is a monthly series of family-friendly, small group get-togethers exploring Santa Cruz’s diverse natural spaces through guided activities.

It’s time to get out and about! Join us for a nature walk through the habitats of Pogonip Open Space. Museum educators Chris Soriano and Rocio Sànchez-Nolasco will guide you through the redwood forest, open meadows, and woodlands on a search for native plants and animals. We’ll also explore the cultural history of the area, from the Awaswas-speaking Uypi tribe to the era of lime kilns and lumber.
