FULL 8/13 Family Fun with Sand Castles

Build your own sand castle at Castle Beach! Join the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History for August’s Family Fun event where we’ll play on the beach, learn about the science of sand, and use recycled materials to re-create our own versions of the historical Scholl Marr Castle, which used to stand at the entrance of what is known today as Seabright Beach.

Space is limited, so register in advance for this afternoon of free family fun. Location details shared upon registration.
