Climate Action Market at the Seymour Center

April 23, 2022 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Seymour Marine Discovery Center
100 McAllister Way
Santa Cruz

World-class science + community climate action with a dash of music, food, games, crafts, and more.

Learn about the science happening to understand the impacts of climate change on the oceans and our local coastal climate. Connect with local community organizations working to prepare our community for life in a changing climate.

This is a science-meets-community-action festival open to the public. Imagine a farmer’s market vibe — lots of people buzzing about outdoors with music, food, games, arts & crafts, and booths. The booths will be filled with scientists, civic partners, community organizations, and businesses sharing what they’re doing to understand and/or act to achieve healthy marine, coastal ecosystems and human communities.

Parking & Transportation

Bike Santa Cruz County will provide a Bike Valet service, so we encourage you to ride your bikes! If you plan to drive, there are several medium-sized parking lots on the Coastal Science Campus with free parking. If those parking lots fill up, there is additional street parking along Delaware Ave. You will walk for a few minutes, but the walk takes you through a Natural Reserve, so we think you’ll enjoy the beautiful stroll as you approach the Climate Action Market.

For ADA access, parking attendants will point you to reserved parking or drop-off/pick-up locations.
