The Pacific Coast Science and Learning Center has participated in a variety of research efforts, including these recent or ongoing projects:
Between 2001 and 2005, we coordinated the Tomales Bay Biodiversity Inventory - an organization of over 40 cooperators and individuals including land owners, public agencies, advocacy groups and educational institutions dedicated to fostering a deeper understanding of life in Tomales Bay and its watershed. These species list data have been uploaded to the National Park Service's IRMA system (under NPSpecies) where they and related reports are searchable.
