Greetings reader, my name is Kevin Sanchez and I am a SRJC biology student interested in all things involving science. I have always had a great love of science and this summer I was able to work on the Bodega Marine Reserve with my amazing mentor Luis Morales, a PhD student studying ecology.

Bodega Marine Reserve

Bodega Marine Reserve (BMR), the 362-acres surrounding the Bodega Marine Laboratory, provides protected lands for research and education. Researchers and students come to investigate habitats remarkably diverse for such a small area. Subtidal, rocky intertidal, mudflat, sandy beach, fresh and saltwater marsh, coastal grassland and dune communities are all within walking distance.
