Coast Guard Station Bodega Bay, located at 355 Doran Beach Rd., and Cutter Sockeye invite members of the public to an open house tomorrow. This Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., visitors will have the opportunity to tour USCG boats and aircraft, observe search and rescue demonstrations, and meet local Coast Guard members. Spokespersons will also be available to answer questions about missions in the area.

“We’re proud to serve this community,” said Senior Chief Petty Officer Jeremiah Wolf, Station Bodega Bay’s officer-in-charge. “We hope the public takes this opportunity to come out and learn about the Coast Guard’s role in maritime safety and security along the California coast and meet some of our awesome partner agencies.”

Visitors will have the opportunity to tour USCG boats and a helicopter, as well as other assets and equipment used by the Coast Guard and partner agencies. The event will be kid-friendly, including games. For more info, call (707) 875-3596.
