The Kenneth S. Norris Center dedication: a legacy lives on
The Kenneth S. Norris Center for Natural History supports natural history educational and research opportunities for students, faculty, staff, and the greater Santa Cruz community. Established in 2014 through a lead endowment gift from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the Norris Center builds upon the contributions that Professor Ken Norris and others made to the field of natural history at UCSC.

The event also paid homage to the 50th anniversary of the University of California Natural Reserves System that Ken Norris helped found. Read more from environmental studies professor, Karen Holl.
