We will be meeting at Brainard Marsh to discover a little about our local seaweeds. We’ll be taking a look at what products we use everyday (including food!) which contain seaweed without our realizing it. Seaweeds are used for a variety of purposes including medicines, biofuel, fertilizers, cosmetics and so many more. We’ll be collecting and inspecting the seaweeds we find with microscopes and magnifiers, and each student will be making a seaweed pressing to take home.
We’ll also be pulling out the seining net to explore what types of fish use Brainard Marsh area for shelter. Please dress to get wet and muddy.
Location may have to be switched to museum due to inclement weather.
All participants and registrants of Museum programs must agree to abide by the Museum's Terms & Conditions.
