Discovery Lab – Our Coast @ VIMS - Catlett-Burruss Research and Education Lab
Apr 21 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The coast is where the land meets the sea. It is a fascinating ecosystem to explore and one that is heavily impacted by human activity. During this lab, we will be taking a look at the biodiversity found along the coastline as well as the geology of the coastline and the physical processes that work to create and continually reshape our coasts. Amanda Guthrie, a graduate student at VIMS, will help us understand how truly amazing the coastal environment is and how we can help protect and preserve these valuable habitats.

Discovery Labs are free, family-friendly programs provided each month by the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (CBNERR) at VIMS. Designed with elementary-aged youth and their parents in mind, each lab focuses on a different topic related to the Chesapeake Bay and our local environment and includes exhibits, demonstrations, and hands-on activities as well as a short presentation (from 6:30-7:00 PM) by an expert on the topic.

Reservations to this event are required due to limited space. Registration will open 6 weeks before the date of this lab.
