Event description

Description

Experience science in action at the only marine laboratory on the San Francisco Bay, SF State's Estuary & Ocean Science Center. Our theme this year is “Hope for the Bay.” With our scientists and partners, learn why we have reasons to be hopeful about the health of the Bay.

Try your hand at measuring crabs, tracking marine mammals, collecting plankton, and more. Use the tools of the trade. Connect with our Coastal Science Allies. Meet live marine organisms from San Francisco Bay. Participate in collaborative art projects. Discover solutions to environmental challenges.

At Discovery Day, you can also be among the first to see the winners of the 2019 California Coastal Commission's K-12 Coastal Art & Poetry Contest!

Admission and parking for Discovery Day is FREE, but registration is required!
