A commemoration of the final transfer of property from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to San Francisco State University’s Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies (RTC) took place on August 30. Now, the University officially owns and operates the entire 52.5-acre property in Tiburon. The ongoing partnership between RTC and NOAA was celebrated in Building 36, the newly completed San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) headquarters. The facility comprises RTC’s newest marine science labs, offices and classrooms on San Francisco Bay.

Speakers were (from left): Timothy Keeney, deputy assistant secretary for oceans and atmosphere at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; Jaime C. Kooser, manager of the SF Bay NERR; Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey; longtime RTC Board member Ed Ueber; RTC Director Toby Garfield; SF State President Robert Corrigan and California Secretary for Resources Michael Chrisman. For more information about RTC and NERR, visit the Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies and San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.
