Discover living shorelines

Going virtual

Like everyone, we are scrambling to adapt our educational programming in the era of social distancing. Our Discovery Days are one of the most beloved programs at the UF/IFAS Nature Coast Biological Station. Normally, we would open our doors once or twice a week to welcome visitors. These visitors learn about current projects, local species, and interact with NCBS students and staff. Since we cannot do Discovery Days as usual, we are adapting the content to video form. Every Friday, a new Virtual Discovery Day video drops on the NCBS Facebook and YouTube channel.

In case you missed it, the recent video on living shorelines, by NCBS intern Natalie Stephens, is below. Check it out!

If you are like us and can’t get enough of living shorelines, there’s more! You can check out the Bite-sized Science webinar series for the recording of the April 30th edition on living shorelines. I gave this short (~30 min) webinar yesterday and it was a lot of fun! We covered the need for living shorelines, as well as a short case study and some ways you can get involved.
