An Immersive Marine Biology Experience
September 9 @ 6:00 pm - September 11 @ 6:00 pm$275
You will be introduced to benthic (sea floor) and planktonic marine organisms, pelagic and shore birds, and marine mammals offshore of the Coos Bay and Cape Arago region, an area known for extremely high diversity. Use scientific tools to look at this marine biodiversity up close in the field on foot, offshore via research vessel, and in the laboratory. We will survey local species and habitats and ecological and oceanographic processes influencing organism form, function, interactions, survival and distribution. We will also discuss uses of marine resources by local communities, coastal tribes, and wildlife. This class will be an immersive, intensive experience. Ages 12+ welcome.
