Tuesday, March 18 – Join Dr. Jamie Vaudrey with a presentation entitled “The Breathing of the Bays: a journey into green water.” Long Island Sound is noted as America’s most urbanized estuary, but what does this mean to the life inhabiting these waters and we humans who depend upon the Sound for livelihood and recreation? How do our daily habits and future choices influence the marine realm? Long Island Sound includes over seventy small harbors and bays which serve as the entry point to people visiting the Sound. While much is known about the status of the deeper portions of the Sound, very little is known about these small shallow embayment’s. The shallow areas host a great diversity of habitats which in turn serve as nursery and feeding grounds for many commercially and recreationally important species.
The “Rising Seas” lecture by Dr. Adam Whelchel, Director of Science for the Nature Conservancy, has been rescheduled for TUESDAY, APRIL 22.
