BaseCamp at Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History

The Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, one of my favorite local area museums within range of Ventura County, will be renovating the popular Backyard and Nature Clubhouse through mid-2018.

During this renovation period, the Museum has opened "BaseCamp" for fun, learning and exploration!

BaseCamp includes the following features:

  • Naturalist Field Station - From 10am to noon on weekdays and 12:15-3:15pm on weekends, a naturalist will be on hand to share natural objects, live insects and other small critters.
  • Build Zone - Create structures with bamboo poles.
  • Search Zone - Dig in the Museum's mulch piles for invertebrates.
  • Bug Boot Camp - Dig from 10:30-11:30am with a naturalist using tools, magnifiers and identification guides for invertebrates.
  • Nature Art Zone - Make arts with items from nature.

BaseCamp to be closed on October 7, November 4 and March 3, 2018.

Admission to the Museum is $12 for adults, $8 for 65+ seniors and teens (13-17) and $7 for children 2 to 12 years of age.
