I was surprised to find that the center includes programs that include tours that focus on the California Science Framework. They also have a "Movable Museum" outreach programs. The "Paws and Jaws" program is a hands-on look at North American mammals. The "Acorns, Sea, and Sage" program is a discovery lesson about the first people of Southern California. Also, the "Protect our Watery World" program is an exploration of non-point-source pollution and how action at home can protect aquatic wildlife. There are teacher workshops and even science classes/camp provided during winter/spring/summer break!
