Lab Docents tell the history of the Lab and its pivotal role in the life and work of marine biologist Ed Ricketts and of his friendship and collaboration with author John Steinbeck, and their circle of friends at the Lab, and of the "PBL Members" who bought the Lab in the mid-1950s and were instrumental in the founding of the Monterey Jazz Festival. Interpretation of the history of the Pacific Biological Laboratories may be suitable for children 10 years of age or older. Reasonable accommodations or other auxiliary aids and/or services may be provided upon request. To ensure availability, you are advised to make your request at least 72 hours prior to the meeting/event you wish to attend. Due to difficulties in securing Sign Language Interpreters, five or more business days notice is strongly recommended.
