Programs

There are many groups who use the Vermilion Sea Field Station (VSFS) and Rancho San Gregorio for scientific and educational use. We are always interested in accomodating more good works so please email us or visit our contact page if you are interested in having us host such an opportunity. Current and past groups we have hosted include:

Just click on the school's name to find out more information about their particular programs. Groups typically enjoy field studies at VSFS by exploring the tide pools and rock reef off the front porch, the 16 Islands in the area, nearby mangroves, whale watching, hiking, and the desert ecology. The area is well known around the world for its unique and beautiful habitats, earning it a proud spot among the UNESCO world heritage sites. The entire Gulf of California is amidst one of the world's Hope Spots, places in the ocean that merit special protection because of their unique wildlife and habitats that serve as the backbone for several populations of marine life across the Earth's Oceans. Rancho San Gregorio offers hikes into the desert where Borrego (Desert Big horn) Sheep can be found amongst several springs. Groups also have the opportunity to be apart of the medical clinic ran by Doctor Rafael Galvan-Villavicencio, various educational opportunities with ethnobotany, indiginous cave paintings and extensive hiking to name just a few opportunities.
