WELLFLEET, Mass – Cape Cod National Seashore’s Atlantic Research and Learning Center will host the tenth annual Science in the Seashore Symposium, virtually, on Thursday, September 23, from 9:30 am to 1 pm. The on-line event is free and open to the public. The program features a diverse group of scientists and scholars sharing natural and cultural research projects they are conducting within the seashore.
The Science in the Seashore Symposium is a unique opportunity to hear directly from scientists and resource professionals conducting research in the national seashore. There will be eight brief and engaging presentations with opportunities to ask questions. Topics include cardiac activity in Atlantic Bay scallops, genetic diversity of cordgrass (Spartina alterniflora) across different saltmarshes, cyanobacteria in freshwater ponds, eelgrass (Zostera marina) impacted by microplastics, and archaeology on Great Island.
The Atlantic Research and Learning Center at Cape Cod National Seashore, the host of the symposium, is one of 17 research and learning centers in the National Park System. Science and education come together at these centers to preserve, protect, manage, and understand park resources.
The annual Science in the Seashore Symposium is sponsored by Friends of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Friends has been the national seashore's philanthropic partner since 1987, and sponsors the Nickerson Fellowship, which provides annual grants for research in the national seashore.
Please register before noon on September 22 to receive the link to the online program. Look for official announcements about the Science in the Seashore Symposium on the national seashore’s website, on the park’s Facebook page, and on Twitter at @CapeCodNPS.
