Rock Talk Seminar Series
Our Rock Talk Seminar Series is a long-standing and well-loved tradition at SML. Historically, faculty members and guest speakers would gather with students on Appledore Island's rocky shoreline (giving the Rock Talk series its name) to present on a wide range of topics related to natural history, ecology, biology, and more. To stay connected with our community following the pandemic, we transitioned our Rock Talks online and have featured guest speakers from across the world. Below you will find recordings from past seminars.
Please note: All Rock Talks begin at 8pm on Tuesdays for the 2022 season. You must register for the live presentations ahead of time, and all registration links will be shared on this page. We look forward to seeing you at our next Rock Talk!
