Several changes are afoot this fall. Soon we will be offering a discovery day, a quarterly newsletter to our members, an evening lecture series and much more!

Please check back with us soon.

NATURAL RESOUCES SCIENCE CAMPS are over and we appreciate everyone that helped us out.

Our appreciation goes out to all of our sponsors who helped us get these camps off the ground: Coast Central Credit Union, City of Arcata, Codding Foundation, Humboldt Sponsors, Humboldt State University, Kokatat, Redwood Capital Bank, and Rotary Club of Arcata Sunrise.

More thanks to other donors: Piersons Building Center and Stillwater Sciences

Our bees are back and are busy!

We also have a newly painted sign. Here it is along with the volunteer Dayna Wallace, who painted it for us. Thank you Dayna!

Current Lecture Series

SRL The mission of the museum, through its collections, exhibits, and programs, is to inspire an understanding and appreciation of the dynamic natural world. By exploring the museum, we hope visitors are inspired to get out and explore other magical places in northwest California. We also hope to provide a learning laboratory for Humboldt State University students. Please take a tour and send any suggestions to the webmaster.
