Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History


To inspire discovery, wonder, and stewardship of our natural world.

The Big Idea

The Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History serves as a hub for science and history in our area, and continues to use exhibits, educational programming and events to provide a space for curious minds to come together and explore new topics and ideas (even if the space is online for now). Working directly with the community, they have quickly adjusted to new needs and met people where they are, like with the new Museum To You free, virtual programming. The museum continues to work for positive change in our community and the natural world by creating engaging programs such as Science Saturday and Virtual Museum Field Trips, preserving its collection and compiling important ecological data through the LiMPETS program.

Thank you for all the creative ways the Museum staff found to remain connected to the community and its volunteers and ways that allowed you to function during this unprecedented time. Your efforts and ingenuity didn't go unnoticed and they are most certainly appreciated. I continue to be proud of my involvement with the PG Museum, an organization so committed to educating the public about the natural world.

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
