Come and explore the Bay of Fundy seashores with students who share your interest in marine life. This hands-on field course will introduce participants to the creatures hiding under the rocks, beneath the seaweed, in the mud, and in the water column. What you collect is what you will study back in the lab. The first part of the course will concentrate on collecting, observing, identifying and classifying diversity of local invertebrates and taking environmental measurements. The second part of the course will ask students to pull the basic information together to get a better understanding of which animals live where and why.
