Community Building

As you come up the hill from the campus perimeter road, the first building you see is the Community Building, so designated because its purpose is to provide the greater Santa Cruz residents a welcoming place to enjoy classes, lectures, individual study, group functions as well as a marvelous view of the Monterey Bay to the south. The building houses a spacious lobby, community room, lecture classroom, faculty offices, a learning center/library and site of the future garden store.

Younger Horticulture Learning Center

Floyd Younger
Horticulture Learning Center

The Floyd Younger Environmental Horticulture Learning Center was dedicated in the spring of 2003 to honor one of the founding fathers of Cabrillo College and first Vice President of Instruction Floyd Younger. Floyd was responsible for instituting the Horticulture program as a course of study at the urging of Richard Merrill. Over the last year, the 2,000 volume research center has been logged into the main library data base which can be accessed online. The HLC is open for students and the public to come and study about various aspects of plants, as a reference (non lending) library.

 

Bench View of Monterey Bay

If you wander around to the south side of the building, you will be rewarded by a breathtaking panorama of the entire Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary, including a chance to check the waves at Pleasure Point. So have a seat, relax and enjoy the view.
