Coastal Training Program



The 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. 

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.


  • 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 Coastal Training Program is a collaboration between the Estuary & Ocean Science Center, SF State and SF Bay NERR. We would also like to acknowledge and thank our non-profit partner the University Corporation for hosting our program.
