Marine Science Institute REEF sea urchin

Wed, Jul 17 4:00pm - 4:45pm

Location: UCSB REEF Aquarium (30 person tour limit)

Meet at the corner of Channel Islands Road and Lagoon Road. The tour will start from that location on campus.

UC Santa Barbara's Marine Science Institute (MSI) Research Experience and Education Facility (REEF) provides a hands-on educational experience with the natural environment in our own front yard: the Santa Barbara Channel. From 2 to 2,000 gallons, the REEF is a student-guided exploration of our local marine ecosystems and other ocean habitats around the world.

Established in 1969, the MSI focuses on marine, coastal zone, and freshwater research; marine policy studies; and educational outreach in marine science.

After touring the REEF, we'll walk along the bluff for scenic views of the coastline and Pacific Ocean.
