Outdoor Workshop Leader: Melanie Meade, South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo) Nature Educator
Seaweeds are an integral part of our coastal bay ecosystems, providing food and shelter for many marine organisms. These marine plants are important ecologically since they help to remove carbon dioxide and nitrogen and produce oxygen. This hands-on workshop in the field is an opportunity to learn how to identify, collect, and press seaweeds using techniques that highlight the plant’s color, shape and form. Material Fee: $5.
