NCOS Education Resumes with Pre-k Field Trips!

Mon, 08/30/2021 - 15:41 -- jeremiahbender

We are excited to resume educational visits this summer after over a year of restrictions that prevented organized field trips to North Campus Open Space. Currently ongoing is a collaboration with Orfalea Family Children’s Center (OFCC) funded by UCSB’s Coastal Fund. NCOS’s proximity to OFCC makes it an ideal destination for these 2- to 5-year-olds to explore, learn, and connect with nature. Click here to learn more about these exciting field trips!
