Fall Speaker Series: Stories from the Sea

Join us this fall for stories about Southern California communities and our relationships with the sea.

Please join us on Tuesdays, 5:30-6:30, to meet local leaders who preserve and share local stories of our relationship with the sea. This series is part of the Stories from the Sea internship, which invites UCI undergraduates to record the personal histories of community members in the Newport Beach community and their encounters with the sea.
