Life on Corcoran Lagoon:
Intersection of Habitats

The Live Oak Library sits adjacent to a watery world, called Corcoran Lagoon. The lagoon is part of a greater watery world, connected to the Monterey Bay via Corcoran Lagoon Beach. It is one ecosystem, fluctuating with the seasons as well as the daily tides.

Join Friends of Corcoran Lagoon Beach as they present the ecology, history, ownership and management problems, and opportunities of Corcoran Lagoon. There will be a spectacular slide show of the dozens of bird species and other life forms that call Corcoran Lagoon and its outflow to the ocean their home.

Thursday • February 1
6:30pm - 8:00pm
Downtown Library • 224 Church St.
Upstairs Meeting Room

The Friends of Corcoran Lagoon Beach were founded in January 2014 as volunteers. Friends of Corcoran Lagoon Beach (FoCLB) has collaborated with the Live Oak Library, the County’s Parks Department and Environmental Health Department, California Department of Fish & Wildlife and even researchers at UCSC to preserve and protect the lagoon system’s wildlife, through education. Visit the Friends of the Corcoran Lagoon Beach at foclb.weebly.com.

Citizen Science is a collaboration between the Santa Cruz Public Libraries; the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History (SCMNH), the Santa Cruz Children's Museum of Discovery (SCCMOD) and the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC).

We invite you to join us every first Thursday of the month for a presentation and Q&A with local experts and researchers in the field discussing life science, ecology, geology, genetics, climatology and more. Let’s connect, inspire and inform each other!
