VVC Biology Club
Our purpose: The VVC Biology Club has several goals: to provide students with learning experiences in the natural environment, to give students opportunities to communicate with real biologists in the field, classroom, and lab, and to serve the VVC campus community.
What we do: The VVC Biology Club sponsors events such as field trips and biologist guest speakers. All VVC students are welcome to attend.
Upcoming Field Trips: There are no upcoming trips planned, as the club does not meet during the summer; However, the club plans two to four field trips each semester. The locations vary widely, depending on the interests of club members.
Past Field Trips: This past semester (spring 2013) the club hiked to Gray's Peak in the San Bernardino Mountains, and we also toured the UC Irvine Medical Center dialysis unit. Trips in other semesters have included excursions to Death Valley National Park, Leo Carillo State Park, Mojave Narrows Regional Park, La Brea Tar Pits, the San Diego L. A. Zoos, Mitchell Caverns, Kelso Sand Dunes, and many other areas. We have also volunteered for the Catalina Islands Conservancy, building trails, picnic tables, and working in their native plant garden.
Fund-raising events: The VVC Biology Club sells snack items to raise money for club outings and service projects.
Meetings: Meeting times will be announced by poster and on this website near the beginning of each semester.
