Nature in L.A.
Module - Nature Gardens Blog
Take a journey and discover L.A.’s biodiversity with Museum scientists! Throughout the school year we offer four day trips focused on specific plants and animals, which culminate in one interdisciplinary overnight campout. You’ll explore a Southern California area of special ecological note, and get first-hand experience with different field techniques, taught by experts.
Each participant in these 25-person groups gets a unique tool, field guide and badge that highlights each field trip’s focus. By the end, you’ll have your very own nature kit that you can use on any outdoor adventure. Choose one or all, it’s up to you!
Trek the Palos Verdes Peninsula with NHMLA’s Assistant Curator of Marine Mammals Dr. Jorge Velez-Juarbe and Collections Manager of Invertebrate Paleontology Dr. Austin Hendy.

Members: $25 and Nonmembers: $30
