This month, Pelecanus brought their show to Cabrillo in an episode entitled, “Bioblitz! At Cabrillo National Monument.” Focusing on our May 21-22nd, 2016 event, this episode perfectly encapsulates the fun and importance of citizen science and our connection within the local community.

For the Centennial Celebration, Cabrillo National Monument joined forces with Pelecanus to highlight the people and parks that comprise America’s Best Idea. Each month an episode is released focusing on a select science unit within the National Parks.

Within the Centennial goals of the National Park Service, our collaboration with Pelecanus seeks to shed light on the unique scientific endeavors and conservation conversations of the National Parks and their affiliates. We hope that this partnership serves as an example of how we, as a society, can have a positive impact on the world around us and that we can find optimism and inspiration through science.
