The Atlantic Research and Learning Center at Cape Cod National Seashore will host the fifth annual Science in the Seashore Symposium at the Salt Pond Visitor Center on Thursday, August 27, from 1 to 5 PM. This popular program features a diverse group of scientists and scholars sharing the natural and cultural research projects they are conducting within the seashore. The Science in the Seashore Symposium is a great opportunity for the public to learn about the science of the Cape Cod National Seashore from the scientists in the field.
There will be brief and engaging presentations about bats, hognose snakes, fish in local waters, greenhouse gas emissions from salt marshes, roseate terns, river herring, preserving dune shacks, and more. See the agenda below.
The Atlantic Research and Learning Center is one of nineteen research and learning centers in the National Park Service. Research and learning centers are places where science and education come together to preserve, protect, and encourage understanding of park resources.
Financial assistance for the symposium is provided by Friends of the Cape Cod National Seashore, the national seashore's official fundraising partner. The symposium is free and open to the public.
