Hi Friends,

Thinking you might need a cabin-fever reliever? Come hear the latest about rockweed-dominated habitats next Tues Jan 14 at the Blue Hill Library. Dr. Hadlock Seeley has interesting data to share about marine algae and the animals that can be found feeding upon or hiding among it, including juvenile American eel. She will help us understand what is known to date about rockweed management. We’ll come away with a whole new perspective on this amazing plant.

Do come if you can, and share this invitation with your fellow explorers, fishermen, beach-combers, sailors, birders, artists, students, library supporters, researchers and natural history / marine ecology buffs. 

I hope to see you there!

All best,
