Spring Break

Time to Try Catalina!

Spend your spring break on Catalina Island! Our spring break trips are the ideal way to learn more about the Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies and all our programs.

Trips are usually open to all USC students and include housing, meals, and activities at the Wrigley Marine Science Center. You’ll get to do things like:

  • Snorkel in our cove and meet the marine life
  • Kayak in the San Pedro Channel while learning about Catalina Island geology
  • Learn about island plant ecology while hiking in the hills
  • Collect water samples and conduct an experiment with plankton
  • Relax at a cookout on the beach
  • Tour WMSC lab facilities and learn about our work to save the planet

Our next spring break trip will be open for registration in early 2023. In the meantime, enjoy the gallery of photos from our 2022 trip!
