Our Mission

The mission of the Northern California Natural History Museum is to create a life-long learning environment that enables people to explore, interpret, and celebrate the magnificent natural heritage of our region through science, research, and education.

We strive to combine the resources of California State University, Chico and the entire region to provide an educational and culturally enriching site where families, school classes, clubs, and friends can gather for a variety of activities:

  • To learn about the natural history of Northern California, past and present
  • To compare Northern California's habitats with others in North America and the world
  • To explore interactions between our region's environment and the people who live here, including the original Native Americans
  • To participate in the exhilaration of "doing science"
  • To learn about our region's critical habitats and then visit the habitats on field trips
