We will be running the USC Family Science Program in the summer of 2016!
The University of Southern California Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies invites you and your family to embark on a journey of scientific discovery at our very special Family Science Explorers program! Join USC faculty, staff, and researchers at USC’s “other” campus, the Philip K. Wrigley Marine Science Center on beautiful Catalina Island. Snorkel in a Marine Life Refuge with marine scientists, hike the “off the beaten track” trails of Catalina, explore the Interior, and watch the sunrise and sunsets. Look for marine mammals while you kayak and some local critters while you hike! Relax, unwind and learn all at the same time!
