Coastal Stewards: Weather and Climate

February 29, 2020, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

A man surveys a coastal flood using software on his mobile phone.

Are you interested in climate research in coastal Georgia? If so, this is the class for you. We’re impacted by the weather everyday, and climate shapes how humans, plants and wildlife thrive in coastal Georgia. This program will help you understand how coastal Georgia is influenced by weather and climate and, in turn, help you better prepare for, and respond to, those influences. In particular, monitoring and responding to sea level rise will be explored in more detail. Activities include research lectures, shell bagging, water quality testing and a field trip to Fort Pulaski National Monument.

Cost: $44 (Registration fee does not include $10 park admission fee!! Please bring $10 for entrance to Fort Pulaski National Monument to participate in the workshop field trip.) 

Register online here.

Registration and payment required by Feb. 22.

Each workshop contains a mixture of lecture, lab and field activities using scientific and recreational equipment.
