Each year the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History honors individuals that have provided exemplary service and longstanding support to the museum with its annual Legacy Award.

Recipients of this honor are chosen by the museum’s board of trustees and the award is presented at the museum’s Leadership Circles of Giving Dinner, which takes place annually in January.

The museum’s 2016 Legacy Award recipients were Lyn and David Anderson, The Palmer G. Jackson Family and Heloise and Alexander Power.

These individuals have made a lasting positive impact on the museum, not only with their financial support but also with their leadership, friendship and dedication.

“The Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History is grateful for these stalwart and generous supporters,” said Museum President and CEO Luke J. Swetland. “All have contributed to the brilliant success of our museum.” 

The annual Leadership Circles Dinner not only

In addition to recognizing the museum’s generous supporters, this year’s Leadership Circles Dinner also kicked off of the museum’s centennial celebration: “Celebrating a Century of Community.”

The Leadership Circles of Giving program is the most philanthropic level of membership at the museum and is made up of a select group of individuals who provide critical support for the museum and Sea Center.

These dedicated museum supporters are the foundation of the museum’s educational programs, research, collections and exhibits.

For more information on the Leadership Circles of Giving program and its benefits, contact Diane Devine at 805.682.4711 x124 or [email protected].

Sherri Frazer is the director of marketing and communications for the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
