Here you will find a unique educational archive to connect both students and visitors to the natural resources of Cabrillo National Monument. Within the 3D Cabrillo Biomodel library, there are free downloadable versions of many of the prominent organisms found in our Rocky Intertidal Zone to print on your own. Within the Lesson Plan, there is a step-by-step guide for students and educators to discover how to create their own 3D models. Make a reservation if you would like us to come to your classroom and assist.
