Students with an interest in marine science are invited to participate in a very special opportunity to learn about the coastal environment with Rookery Bay staff and local researchers during the Summer Institute for Marine Science. This weeklong program brings students into the estuary for hands-on experiences relating to ecology, marine biology, sustainability and citizen science.
This year's theme is watersheds and water quality. Activities generally include kayaking, mudflat exploration and pulling a trawl net behind a research reserve vessel to learn about the animals of the Rookery Bay estuary. PLUS! We'll take field trips to nearby environmental centers, such as MOTE Marine Lab.
This program was made possible with funding support from the National Science Foundation and Lucky's Market Naples.
