To say it’s been a big year for Noyo Center is an understatement! Because of you and the support of our community, the Noyo Center has pulled through difficult times with new programs and big plans for the future. We’ve taken another significant step towards realizing our vision for marine science on the coast, acquiring a building in Noyo Harbor to deepen our research program, most urgently around kelp recovery.

Join us for the 2022 Fall Fundraising Party – Noyo Center On the River. The event will celebrate this year’s achievements while raising money for our ongoing research and education programs with an auction and Fund-A-Need Drive.

Party Highlights:

  • You’ll be greeted with a celebratory champagne from Father + Daughter Cellars and sample delicious bites from the new and wildly popular Izakaya Gama Japanese restaurant. Wine from Minus Tides Wines and beer from North Coast Brewing and Anderson Valley Brewing will be available throughout the night.
  • Tour our new facility, speak with Noyo Center staff, and mingle on the deck – easily the best spot in Noyo Center Harbor – while you enjoy music courtesy of guitarist Christopher Cisper.
  • Hear updates on what’s new at the Discovery Center and Crow’s Nest, and learn about our programs ranging from community science events to vital citizen science programs to big fun at our summer camps. Hear from the voices of our community about what Noyo Center means to them.
  • Listen to the exciting plans Noyo Center has for 2023 from Director Sheila Semans and Board president Dave Turner.
  • Tom Allman will conclude the event with a brief live auction of exciting experiences and gifts, and introduce our 2023 Fund-A-Need drive.

If you can’t make it, there are a few ways to support Noyo Center in this event. Make a one-time donation today, or consider becoming a sustaining supporter.

The fundraising fun starts early with our online silent auction featuring one-of-a kind Noyo experiences, professional sporting events, local artwork, etc. No ticket purchase is required to participate in the silent auction. Bidding is open until Noon on October 2. Please click on the link below:
