Have you ever wanted to volunteer in a natural history collection or herbarium?
Join us Saturday November 2 (9:00am to 3:00pm) to help us digitally transcribe specimens from the UCSB Natural History Collections. Tour the collections, meet collection staff, participate in research and learn about our projects that are helping make information about museum specimens and plants available online.
This summer, CCBER conducted the 3rd year of vegetation monitoring at the North Campus Open Space restoration project. With three years of this data, we can now see more clearly how the restoration is progressing, and where more work or a change in management may be needed. Here we report on some of this year’s data and what it is telling us.
The CCBER Fall Newsletter is out. See updates from all of the CCBER collections, outreach and restoration.
In this CCBER Supporter Spotlight, would like to thank Bill and Mary Cheadle who continue to support CCBER and the botanical legacy of Vernon Cheadle.
