UCSB REEF Field Trip Wish List Request


This all day program is a product of UCSB’s Marine Science Institute, led by REEF director Scott Simon and his team of undergraduate scientists. The field trip focuses on local marine science and long-term ecological research. Students may experience visiting a dorm, investigating a kelp holdfast, holding touch tank animals, and exploring tides and food webs on Campus Point.  Students travel to and from the campus by bus, and eat lunch near the Lagoon. Students come away from their day at UCSB challenged and inspired!
