Due to the COVID-19 crisis we are canceling our overnight public programs; however, we are exploring the possibility of day trips later in the summer. Please check back here after July 1 for more information.
This summer, we are going to bring Shoals science and Appledore Island to you! All summer, we will create live and recorded digital media to bring you on an island tour, on a seal survey, to meet and chat with amazing marine scientists to learn about their work, and more. Join us for a live island tour, in the gull colony, and more. We have an amazing line up of marine scientists lined up to present interactive webinars all summer, starting June 1. Never has our science been so accessible to all!
For updates on all our programming, be sure to sign up for our newsletters.
Place-based, immersive programs that promote understanding and wise stewardship.
