Randall Morgan

This June, we lost a dear friend, mentor, and one of Santa Cruz County's great naturalists. Morgan's passion to understand and protect local biodiversity was monumental. His legacy will live on through the Norris Center's continued work with his collections and young aspiring naturalists.  Click here to read more and contribute to our initiative to carry on his good work.

In Ken's Words


“I was a naturalist down to my toes and fingertips-teetering between art and science, seeking synthesis.”

Happy spring, the flowers are out! Grab your Jepson and your hand lens to key out these beautiful, pale blue shrubberies so you can tell your friends, 'see I know this!'
