Location and Habitats

Bodega Marine Reserve is located on the Sonoma County coast 60 miles north of San Francisco. Part of the University of California’s Natural Reserve System and site of the Bodega Marine Lab (BML), this 362 acre research and teaching reserve includes a rich mix of coastal habitats protected for long-term studies. Undisturbed rocky intertidal areas are within 100 meters of the Laboratory buildings, and extend over 2 km along the Reserve boundaries. Other intertidal habitats on the Reserve include protected and exposed sandy beaches, extensive lagoon mudflats and sandflats, and tidal saltmarsh.
