Open House at the Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center in Santa Cruz

From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, December 9, USGS scientists will treat visitors to displays about their research at the Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center in Santa Cruz, California. We’ll have interactive exhibits, video and photo displays, posters, deep-sea rocks and minerals, oceanographic equipment, and colorful handouts. Our first open house in 13 years will fill the lobby and entrance courtyard at 2885 Mission Street. We’re sharing our science with the public as part of the “Holiday Bazaar at the Wrigley Building.” Contact: Rex Sanders, rsanders@usgs.gov, 831-460-7555
