The EOS Center is committed to engaging people in learning how the ocean and estuary affect our lives and the environment we live in today, how we can solve environmental problems now, and what may change in the future depending on what we choose to do today. We offer engaging public programs, professional development and volunteer opportunities for individuals, families, students, teachers, environmental professionals and the scientific community.

We are able to offer programs free or for a modest cost thanks to grants and the generosity of private foundations, corporations, businesses and individuals. Join our email list to receive notifications about upcoming events and programs at the EOS Center.
