Discovery Lecture Series
Cabrillo Marine Aquarium is collaborating with our new “neighbor,” the world-class urban marine research and innovation center, AltaSea. The 35-acre campus at the Port of Los Angeles will be dedicated to uniting global marine research, education, business, government philanthropy and community.
To start things off, we will be jointly hosting a Discovery Lecture Series in 2014 and 2015 on select Fridays from 7pm to 9pm at the Aquarium in the John M. Olguin Auditorium.

Unearthing The Historical Wetlands of Southern California
Looking across today’s highly urbanized Los Angeles basin, it is almost impossible to imagine the area once include a vast complex of wetlands. In this presentation, the historical ecology of various wetlands in the Los Angeles region will be uncovered along with a discussion of the Southern California coast, cartography, and how modern tools help us to view the past.
October 3: Dr. Richard F. Ambrose, UCLA
December 5: Dr. Shana Goffredi, Occidental College
