Student Research Updates

 The Norris Center supported two CAMINO undergraduate research interns; the research interns worked with Dr. Gizelle Hurtado to establish the preliminary summer data collection of a planned on-going squirrel project on the UCSC campus. The interns studied the behavior and distribution of California Ground Squirrels, and the egg scavenging behavior and abundance of eastern grey squirrels. Students presented their research at the Fall 2022 EEB symposium sponsored by CAMINO. Check out their great research here!

We will be returning to our regular hours starting this week.

Monday - Thursday: 10am - 4pm

Friday: 10am - 2pm
