CBNERR-VA Discovery Lab – Amazing Migrating Islands

February 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

CBNERR-VA is bringing the shore to you! Learn all about the importance of beaches and barrier islands. These places that we love to visit in the summer protect our coasts, provide habitat for all sorts of critters, store carbon, and even migrate! To find out how, we’ll hear from graduate student Mary Bryan Barksdale as she talks about her research and the reasons barrier island systems fascinate her.

Discovery Labs are free, family-friendly programs provided each month by the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in Virginia (CBNERR-VA) at VIMS. Designed with elementary-aged youth and their parents in mind, each lab focuses on a different topic related to the Chesapeake Bay and our local environment and includes exhibits, demonstrations, and hands-on activities as well as a short presentation (from 6:30-7:00 PM) by an expert on the topic.
