The UCSB Algae Herbarium is awarded a new Institute of Museum and Library Services, Museums for America grant!
Blooms are abuzz with bees and bee-searchers at NCOS and elsewhere at UCSB and beyond. Read on to learn how to recognize some of the native bees in our region (including a recent sighting of an endangered bumblebee species!) and what CCBER's student researchers are doing to improve our knowledge and ability to help support them.
The CCBER Fall Newsletter is out. See updates from all of the CCBER collections, outreach and restoration.
In this CCBER Supporter Spotlight, would like to thank Bill and Mary Cheadle who continue to support CCBER and the botanical legacy of Vernon Cheadle.
As the NCOS project got underway, we were concerned about the 25 acres of invasive weeds between NCOS and South Parcel that could easily colonize the newly restored site. Fortunately, with a grant funded by the Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation Program (EEM), our efforts to control the inhospitable weeds in what we call the EEM zone of NCOS have created openings for natural and planted restoration.
