Mission: to advance ocean conservation through education, exploration and experience.

We envision making our dramatic (and previously inaccessible) coastline available for innovative scientific research, hands-on education and natural resource stewardship. 

The Noyo Center for Marine Science has a three-pronged approach to development, supporting an innovative research program, creating an integrated education program and building a world-class facility for research, education and tourism. Our research and education programs will support activities that engage the community, the visitor, and the scientist in order to inspire connection, communication, collaboration and creativity.  Our facility will be a dynamic environment that showcases sustainability through its landscape, buildings and operations.  The Noyo Center campus will unfold from the land with one element leading naturally to another as it grows and changes over time, transforming the former lumber mill site.
