This summer we are hosting small science seminars on site at the Darling Marine Center, talks will also be available virtually.
The events are free but tickets are required for entry to the in-person event, and registration is required to join the live webinar.
Dr. Heather Leslie, Director of the UMaine Darling Marine Center and Professor UMaine School of Marine Sciences will provide an update on the programs and people active at the Darling Marine Center. The mission of University of Maine’s Darling Marine Center (DMC) is to connect people to the ocean by generating and sharing knowledge of coastal and marine ecosystems and the human communities that are part of them. As the university’s marine laboratory, the DMC brings unique strengths and opportunities to UMaine by virtue of its waterfront facilities, resident expertise and partnerships with marine businesses and local communities. Leslie will highlight how research, education and engagement programs at the DMC connect with scientific and societal priorities in Maine and beyond, and reflect on the role of place-based scientists in particular to help solve the challenges facing coastal communities.
