A gift is a powerful thing. Take the Seymour Center at Long Marine Lab. Every year, thousands of people visit the center, home to approximately 400 marine animals. Children can hold a sea star, marvel at the world's largest whale skeleton—and learn to think like a scientist. The next generation will become the stewards of our coastal regions.

Their values start here. How did the Seymour Center begin? With a planned gift.

People like you support UCSC research teams as they develop solutions to critical environmental and social problems.
