Join us for a celebration of Laura Hecox: lightkeeper, naturalist, citizen scientist, and founder of the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History. As keeper of Santa Cruz’s original lighthouse on West Cliff Drive, Laura Hecox was responsible for ensuring the light never failed — but her work didn’t end there. By sharing her extensive natural history collection with those who toured the light house, she educated and inspired people to pursue connections with the natural world. This month, we celebrate Laura and her influence. Join the Museum crew for the events below…

9-11 a.m. | Community Cleanup at Lighthouse Field
Help us steward the field that once housed Santa Cruz’s lighthouse.

9 a.m. – 2 p.m. | Mobile Museum at Lighthouse Point
Explore items from the Museum’s collections and learn about the history of Laura Hecox, Santa Cruz’s Lighthouse and the Museum.

10 a.m. – Noon | Rockin’ Pop-Up
Join Gavin and Graham — our “geology gents” — for a special pop-up at Lighthouse Point, where we’ll explore the coastal geology of West Cliff.
