Welcome to the 2021 Moss Landing Marine Labs Open House Website!


This year our Open House is completely virtual, but you can still support student scholarships by donating to our Crowdfunding Campaign, purchasing an Open House t-shirt, and shopping our online auction!


Unfortunately in light of continued concern over COVID-19, we have decided against an in-person Open House this spring. The health of our volunteer students, staff, and faculty, as well as our public visitors is our number one priority. We hope you can join us in Spring 2022 when we plan to return to our in-person Open House so you can learn what life is like at our marine station and get an interactive peek at what each lab is working on! This special two-day occasion is a family favorite with educational attractions and activities geared for all ages, yummy food, and student-designed merchandise.
In hopes to still raise money for student scholarships this spring, we have set up a virtual crowdfunding campaign that will run from June 1-30, 2021. On the crowdfunding site you also have the option of purchasing a beautiful MLML Open House t-shirt designed by graduate student Lyndsey Claassen. New to this year's Open House, we have also launched an online auction that will run from June 25-29, 2021.
