During this three-part, shore-based marine science course, participants will investigate how geology, weather, and climate change over time and how these changes impact the organisms and plant life living in local rivers and in the Gulf of Maine. Compare and contrast local rivers, and investigate and identify what lies between the surface and the seafloor. Using scientific equipment, students will gain a better understanding of the vegetation and marine life making its home in our waters. We’ll discuss what causes environmental changes, how quickly these changes occur, and how local species respond.
This is a collaborative program with the Boothbay Sea and Science Center and Maine Maritime Museum. Each date of the course will take place at a different location. Directions to each location will be sent after registration.
