Backyard Skeptics Long Beach is associated with its parent group, Backyard Skeptics (Central Orange Country).

We are a community of individuals interested in exploring and discovering truths in the natural world based on science and critical thinking. As skeptics we question authority and make real-world decisions based upon the conciseness of each scientific field. Our members are humanists, agnostics, atheists and evidencialists. The discovery and awe of the natural world has much more to offer than any supernatural belief systems. Our group offers science-based activities, like an astronomy night, lectures and social gatherings. We welcome ideas from members on any activity that would be of interest to our members.
