Barnacles, Sea Squirts, and Algae, Oh My!

July 28, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

| free

Join intern coordinator Nina Sassano and Adopt-A-Wetland Coordinator Luke Roberson for a virtual lab where they’ll study a fouling community and test water quality. What in the world is a fouling community? Fouling communities are found in different coastal waterways and ecosystems. They may consist of barnacles, sea squirts, sea spiders and many other organisms growing on pilings, docks and under boats. The varieties and abundance of these animals can tell us a lot about the health of the surrounding ecosystem. Volunteers around Georgia help collect fouling plates and water quality data as part of the Adopt-A-Wetland program. Learn more during the program about how you can become an Adopt-A-Wetland volunteer!
