Santa Barbara Children Learn About Nature through UCSB Program

Thank you so much for a lifetime experience. I never thought that I could be a scientist but you made it possible. … Sincerely, Catalina.

That thank-you note –– one of hundreds received from 10- and 11-year olds –– demonstrates how Kids in Nature, a program administered by UC Santa Barbara’s Cheadle Center for Biodiversity & Ecological Restoration, is changing the lives of fifth-grade students in Santa Barbara.

Kids in Nature, or KIN, is an innovative, award-winning outreach program that helps children connect with the natural world, engaging the students in scientific and ecological experiences. A primary goal of the program is to help develop an educated population that is better able to make informed decisions about the future of the environment.
