MCR and SBC LTER graduate and undergraduate students hosted an informational booth featuring MCR site science at the 2014 Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival. Designed to raise public awareness about the current status and trends of coral and temperate reefs worldwide, younger visitors to the exhibit enjoyed reef related games and crafts while older visitors were offered an opportunity to speak with SBC and MCR LTER graduate students about a variety of issues affecting coastal ecosystems. One of the largest Earth Day festivals held each year in the US, this year's two day Santa Barbara Earth Day festival attracted over 37 thousand visitors.
