Wetland Science and Coastal Training

The Wetland Science and Coastal Training Program links science and management through training and technical assistance. We strive to provide timely, practical courses that address high priority issues of local and regional importance to planners, managers and regulators of coastal area resources. The objectives of this program are to:

  • Provide the best available science, tools, and techniques to those individuals and groups whose actions impact coastal watersheds, estuaries and near shore waters.
  • Increase our understanding of the environmental, social, and economic consequences of human activity within the coastal landscape.
  • Increase information exchange and collaboration amongst the many individuals and institutions who affect coastal ecosystems.

The San Francisco Bay Wetland Science and Coastal Training Program is a collaboration between the Romberg Tiburon Center, SFSU and SF Bay NERR.

Our focus is on a variety of local and regional issues including those of particular significance to the San Francisco Bay Area such as habitat management, climate change impacts, invasive species issues, water quality, and land use planning.

We would also like to acknowledge and thank our non profit partner as well, University Corporation for hosting our program.
