Invasive Marine Species Water Reporter Event

Join Friends of Casco Bay and fellow Water Reporters to learn how to identify invasive species!

Water Reporters joined Marine Geologist Peter Slovinsky in June to learn about salt marshes, coastal erosion, and restoration efforts. As Water Reporters, learning from expert scientists is a great way to improve our understanding of Casco Bay!

Water Reporters are invited to the shores of Casco Bay to learn from an invasive species expert, Jeremy Miller. Jeremy is a marine scientist at the Wells Research Reserve where he helps monitor invasive species in Maine.

Jeremy will give us a brief lesson about the types of invasive species he studies and how to identify them. Then we will head down to the beach and get our hands dirty as we look for examples – bryozoanstunicates, and more! – in the intertidal zone and under the docks. This is a fun opportunity to learn about often overlooked marine animals.

RSVP by emailing keeper@cascobay.org.

If you’re not already a Water Reporter, please sign up and join us! We would love to see you at this event.
