“Laura Hecox was keeper of the original Santa Cruz lighthouse from 1883 to 1916, as well as a naturalist who shared her profound love of the environment and marine life with the world through her curated exhibits. Before passing away in 1916, Hecox donated her collections to the City of Santa Cruz, where they became the foundation of Santa Cruz’s first public museum. Take a trip to the 19th Century during this free and festive celebration in honor of the founder of the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History, Laura Hecox!
