UC Davis’ Bodega Marine Laboratory will host a “Meet the Scientists” open house on Saturday, Sept. 13, to showcase the latest research in marine science. Everyone is invited to visit research labs, talk with scientists and enjoy hands-on demonstrations. The event will run from 1 to 5 p.m.

Research projects at the lab focus on understanding complex systems in the coastal environment and include finding solutions for improving degraded marine and terrestrial habitats, monitoring climate change effects of ocean acidification, sustaining local fisheries, saving endangered species and controlling invasive plants and animals.

Extensive training prepares university undergraduate and graduate students for professional careers in education, research and resource management. More than 12,000 guests visit the lab each year through school programs and Friday afternoon public tours.

The tidepool exhibit offers visitors a chance to get up close and personal with intertidal animals such as sea urchins and hermit crabs, and observe seaweeds and fishes. Inside the main building, aquaria display the underwater habitats of Bodega Harbor and the adjacent coastal waters of the Bodega Head State Marine Reserve.

Bodega Marine Laboratory is at 2099 Westshore Road on Bodega Head in Bodega Bay. For directions, go to http://bml.ucdavis.edu/about/directions.

Admission to the open house is free; no pets are allowed. For more information, call 707-875-2211 or email ucdbml@ucdavis.edu.
