California State Parks Ranger and Naturalist Alex Tabone will lead the Indigenous Relationships with Coastal Prairie Plants Native Food Demonstration. This demonstration, hosted by the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History, will share how native people made food from the seeds of grassland plants, following the whole process from the coastal prairie to the dinner plate.


  • Bring a sharp knife if you can for preparation of our looped cooking sticks (we will have some available if you can’t)
  • This program will occur outside in the amphitheater behind the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History. There is a paved and accessible path down to the amphitheater, but to enter into the program space you will need to pass through some shallow steps/ledges.
  • This program will occur rain or shine. If it rains we will have canopies, but please plan on being amongst the elements. In the case of extreme weather we will cancel.
  • Follow local guidelines for COVID safety at the time of the program

General fee: $15
