Funder's Spotlight

We LOVE our grant funders! Each year, Sand Hill Foundation gives program and operations funding to more than 60 local nonprofit organizations in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.

They primarily fund two initiatives: Bay Area Environmental Education and Silicon Valley Out-of-School-Time. Since 2005, Sand Hill Foundation has granted the Marine Science Institute more than $117,000, specifically sponsoring children from low-income schools so they can take field trips to the San Francisco Bay’s waterfront, embark on voyages on our ship, and learn about the marine life and ecology of the Bay.

Summer Adventure Awaits

We are ready for another exciting season of discovery! At Marine Science Camp, young biologists explore their link to the ocean during an action-packed week of fun and adventure.

All campers spend time outdoors at our shoreside facility searching for animals under the docks and in the mud, playing marine science-themed games on our giant lawn, and observing birds flying overhead and across the channel at Bair Island. They also spend a day aboard our 90-foot research vessel working together to catch fish, collect m

Calling for Sea Change

After taking part in Kids Ocean Day and Adopt a Beach, a marine debris education program which connects kids to their local watershed, 700 elementary students, teachers, and volunteers from San Francisco and Marin cleaned up the beach and sat on the sand in the shape of a giant squid at Ocean Beach in San Francisco. In the image, the squid is calling for people to change their behaviors—contributing to plastic pollution, warming sea temperatures, and declining fish stocks— to improve the health of the oceans. San Francisco’s event was organized by the Marine Science Institute of Redwood City and sponsored by the California Coastal Commission’s Whale Tail grants program. Five other similar cl
