We are the Explorers.


Welcome to the Southern California Chapter of The Explorers Club. We are an international multidisciplinary professional society dedicated to the advancement of field research and the ideal that it is vital to preserve the instinct to explore. 

Founded in 1904, our headquarters is located in New York City.

The Southern California Chapter's goal is to further our parent organization's mission of promoting the scientific exploration of land, sea, air, and space by supporting research and education in the physical, natural and biological sciences.
