Some happy members of the Mission Creek Legacy Society

The Mission Creek Legacy Society

The Mission Creek Legacy Society recognizes donors who have remembered the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History in a will, trust, or estate plan.

These members share and embrace the Museum's history and vision. They are passionate about nature and the importance of leaving a healthy natural world for future generations; they recognize the importance of the scientific research conducted by Museum curators and scientists to advance our understanding of the world in which we live and they believe that the Museum's extensive educational programs are important for lifelong learners and the thousands of young people we serve each year that will produce future generations of scientifically literate citizens.

Each fall, members of the Mission Creek Legacy Society gather and are honored in an annual recognition dinner. They also receive special communications and invitations to Museum events and are recognized in the Museum's Annual Report and on the Museum's electronic Donor Wall. Most importantly, Mission Creek Legacy Society members have the satisfaction of knowing that they have created a lasting legacy in support of an institution that they respect and love that will continue to provide meaningful benefits large benefits to our community and society.
