Explore, Connect and Be Inspired

A story that began almost ten thousand years ago is now alive and ready to be told by those who have preserved it for generations.

Join us on this unique educational journey and learn about the resilience, rich history and traditions of the Chumash people.

Return of the Condor

The condor that will be on display was the last female in the wild in 1986. To save her species from extinction, she was taken into captivity to become part of the captive breeding program and given the designation AC8 by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. She was one of 27 birds that founded today’s population.
