About the event

Gil Newton will survey the marine plants and animals along the Cape shoreline, their ecology, and the diverse habitats in which they are found. The participants will learn about the local beaches, salt marshes, sand dunes, tide pools, and rocky areas. There is a fascinating diversity of life along the edge of the sea. Participants will be able to examine preserved samples of marine mollusks, crabs, echinoderms, horseshoe crabs, seaweeds, and other common species.
