The SF State research center is taking a multipronged approach to environmental issues affecting the San Francisco Bay.

San Francisco State University’s Estuary & Ocean Science (EOS) Center has received a $4.35 million grant from the California State Coastal Conservancy (SCC) to build coastal resiliency in the San Francisco Bay.

The proposal consists of four main projects, with several aiming to boost the number of people qualified for related jobs.
