Education activities review: June 28 – July 3

July 6, 2010

Summer public education

Our summer Discovery Labs began June 23. The Kachemak Bay Fish & Fishing labs (3) drew 280 visitors into our lab classroom and this week’s Invasive Species labs (3) drew 235 visitors.

Our twice-weekly Estuary Hikes began June 22. Since then we’ve had 55 people join Jess, Catie, and Charlayna for these 1-hour, informative walks along the Beluga Slough trail.

Each Friday this summer Carmen or Catie lead a 1-hour Beach Walk at Bishops Beach. Over the past 2 weeks 38 people of all ages have joined them on explorations of our shoreline.

Education staff

The Reserve’s summer education intern – Charlayna Cammarata – was offered an Ernest F. Hollings Scholarship from NOAA this week and will be travelling to Washington, DC in August to receive initial training for this prestigious program. We are very proud of her and wish her luck in this latest chapter of her marine biology career.

Catie is on leave this month. Upon her return, she will switch gears from the almost completed exhibit project to fill the role of our community monitoring program coordinator, as well as working with various other education/outreach projects and programs.

Our community monitoring program’s coordinator for the past year – Stormy Haught – departed from the Reserve June 30th and will be researching small mammal physiology for the remainder of the summer in the Arctic.
