The Sitka Sound Science Center, which is an official member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations and the National Association of Marine Laboratories, is involved in a wide variety of locally-relevant aquatic and terrestrial research. We are partnered with numerous universities, organizations, and government departments in pursuit of our research, and strive to use our new knowledge to benefit, educate, and inspire our community and the world.
As a Field Station and educational facility, we offer logistical support for university field courses, rent bench space to visiting scientists, and provide numerous citizen science learning opportunities for the public. Thanks to funding from the National Science Foundation and the Skaggs Foundation, we also have a Scientist in Residency Fellowship (SIRF) program, which brings scientists to Sitka for one month sabbaticals that allow them time to work undisturbed by their usual daily routines and also provide them with community engagement opportunities to share their research and help them improve scientific literacy in our community.
