Our Story

In the past few years, the Noyo Center for Marine Science has grown exponentially. Each year we serve hundreds of students with a variety of field trip and in classroom educational experiences and see thousands of visitors in our two interpretive centers. Come visit us at the Crow’s Nest on the Noyo Headlands or the Discovery Center in downtown Fort Bragg to see marine animal specimens collected and articulated by student interns and community members, learn about the state of our oceans, and experience the ways that art and technology can bring science to life. Our facilities are friendly to all ages and accessibilities.
