Bodega Marine Sciences Association (BMSA)

The Bodega Marine Sciences Association is a group comprised of students, researchers, staff, faculty, and volunteers of the Bodega Marine Laboratory community. BMSA raises funds through apparel sales to provide travel grants for students to attend scientific meetings across the country where they present their research, interact with other researchers, and learn about the latest developments in their field. BMSA members organize and volunteer at local community events, such as the annual Bodega Bay Fisherman’s Festival, Coastal Cleanup Day, and planned work days for invasive species removal. BMSA works with local high school and community college students to engage them in marine science first-hand, mentoring students on how to conduct scientific research in the lab and in the field.
