The Cabrillo Natural History Club is an interdisciplinary club at Cabrillo Community College. Our goal is to bring the classroom outside to give students an opportunity to gain field observation experience and improve on natural historian techniques. We host symposiums, go on field trips, participate in community service activities, and go day and overnight field observation trips!
We make it a point and a mission to be as inclusive as possible. Any and all Cabrillo students are invited and encouraged to please come join us.
Every spring break, we take a field trip to the desert. In the past, we've gone to Mojave Desert, Death Valley, and Lone Pine. Weekend camping trips to local parks happen at least once a semester at places like Pinnacles, Big Sur, Rancho Marino UC Reserve, and many others.
The Natural History Club is a community of students and faculty who share a passion for natural history, science, and the outdoors. Natural history is defined as “the scientific study of animals or plants, especially as concerned with observation rather than experiment, and presented in popular rather than academic form".
