2018 marks the 135th anniversary for the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History showcasing the birds and wildlife, plants, geology, and cultural richness that make the California Central Coast unique in the world. 

This lively celebration will feature different aspects of local history over the past 135 years, five local wineries pouring wines, five local chefs providing food tastings, live music, silent auction and a raffle! 

This event is our main fundraiser for the year, and as a non profit we depend on our wonderful community support to continue to our work. For more information, contact us by email or phone. Thank you for your support, and we hope you will be participating in this fabulous event!
