    Friends of the Prescott College Kino Bay Center


    The Kino Bay Center is Prescott College’s field station on the shores of the Gulf of California in Sonora, Mexico. Each year the Kino Bay Center hosts over 1,450 researchers, students, resident fellows and community visitors from dozens of institutions and community groups from Mexico, the United States and other parts of the world. The mission of the Kino Bay Center is to Protect priority species and habitats through the integrated application of science, education, information exchange and community participation. We achieve this mission by promoting and modeling collaborations between people from different cultures and institutions to co-create solutions to complex conservation challenges.

    The Kino Bay Center is operated by Prescott College with ongoing support from the KAKATU Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the Coleman Family estate, the estate of Sylvia Hulmes, the Christensen Fund, Sonoran Joint Venture, the Marisla Fund of the Orange County Community Foundation and others. We rely on donors like you! Thank you for your support.
