Come visit the HSU Natural History Museum at 1242 G Street Arcata!

Tuesday–Saturday 10am–5pm.

Only one day left to register for our Captivating Aquatics camp!

Scholarships are still available for families that need financial assistance.


During Captivating Aquatics, kids will delve into the world of water and the important life that lives in both salt and fresh water ecosystems. Some of the highlights of this week will be visiting the HSU Marine Lab in Trinidad, exploring the critters in Jacoby Creek, and kayaking on Humboldt Bay along with fun activities on the beach.

Unfortunately, we have cancelled our last camp, Green Energy and Conservation. We will try again next year.

Please help us spread the word.

Captivating Aquatics begins

Monday July 25th.

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.
