The Kumeyaay People have lived in these lands for thousands of years. Their communities are interwoven with the natural environment.
From coastal field sites to the Living Lab, our students explore the natural gifts these Kumeyaay lands provide. Our young people find inspiration in these places, as well as from the Kumeyaay practice of learning and living within the context of our natural world.
Ocean Discovery Institute gives our respect and gratitude to the Kumeyaay Nation.
