This spring, the Mid-Atlantic Sea Grant programs gathered to share insights on coastal and community resilience, emphasizing the power of partnerships. 

From Delaware’s Coastal Resilience Design Studio to Virginia’s interdisciplinary resilience projects, these efforts highlight the importance of collaboration in addressing the climate challenges our communities face.

Science 🤝 Community 

The residents of King Salmon, a coastal community in California, regularly experience flooding due to sea-level rise. A @CASeaGrant -funded study found that community members are already creating their own strategies to deal with the changes.

These findings underline the importance of engaging with local communities for creating effective climate adaptation strategies, as it helps uncover valuable, often overlooked knowledge about local conditions and needs.

@scseagrant's Marine Debris: From Micro to Macro educator workshop is devoted to exploring marine debris, specifically plastics and microplastics.

Through hands-on activities, field-based excursions, presentations, and group discussions, participants will explore topics such as the physical properties of plastics, the formation and impacts of microplastics, research on current and emerging issues, and stewardship opportunities.

Participants will have the chance to assist in the creation of a brand-new marine debris education kit and curriculum that will be piloted during the 2024-2025 school year.

This two-night, three-day workshop is offered free of charge to any K-12 formal or nonformal educator. Most meals and lodging will be provided free of charge at the cottages and dorms at Hobcaw Barony in Georgetown, S.C. Participants will be eligible for 15 renewal credits.

All workshop slots have currently been filled, but a waitlist is available. Please reach out to E.V. Bell, Marine Education Specialist, at mailto:elizabeth.bell@scseagrant.org to join the waitlist.

Students in central Ohio are taking a hands-on approach to learning about sustainability. 🌎

The class sustainably raised fish and grew vegetables in aquaponic tanks over the year. Then, with @OhioSeaGrant’s help, they learned how to harvest and process their own fish. 

For most, it was their very first time handling fish. 🐟

The Guardarenas (Sandwatch) Project, supported by Puerto Rico Sea Grant, raises awareness for conservation and the sustainable use of beaches by involving students, community leaders and teachers in direct monitoring of these public spaces. 🏝️🐚

Leaving behind their traditional classrooms, participants collect scientific data about water quality, beach profiles, sand composition, and characteristics of waves and currents. The information gathered contributes to their understanding of beach morphology and can be used for formulation of public policy and decision-making.

Hurricanes can generate catastrophic damages, piling wreckage along shorelines and waterways. When Hurricane Michael swept through the Florida Panhandle in 2018, it left behind 1,370 derelict vessels. These derelict vessels create hazards for other boaters, prevent navigational access, entangle and trap wildlife, and damage important seagrass and oyster reef habitats. 

To enhance Florida waterways, Florida Sea Grant is helping coastal communities that were devastated by Hurricanes Michael and Ian remove derelict vessels and other marine debris. Learn more about derelict vessels and removal programs here: https://bit.ly/NoBoatLeftBehind

The 2024 National Agritourism Survey is now collecting responses, and you are invited to participate! ‍🌾

All agricultural operations that welcome visitors – whether for on-farm education, direct sales, entertainment, recreation, special events, and more – are invited to complete the survey.  So, if you offer education or rent event space on your farm, have a farmstand, a petting zoo, offer pick-your-own, farm stays, or other on-farm experiences, your insights are crucial.

By participating in this survey, you'll help us pinpoint the types of support farmers like you require – whether it's business assistance, developing networks, applying for grants, or navigating zoning and liability issues. Our goal is to help build the resources you need, improve your access to critical information and opportunities, and shape policy decisions that impact your industry.

This survey is part of a collaborative project led by Penn State with the University of Vermont, Oklahoma State University, the University of Maine, Northeast Regional Center for Rural Development, and other partners across the country. 

We recognize that your time is valuable, which is why the survey will only take 15 minutes to complete. Your insights are invaluable to us, and we sincerely appreciate your willingness to participate.

To take part in the survey, please visit: https://pennstate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5BYIq82EDNWiwtw 

If you have questions about the survey, please contact Claudia Schmidt from Penn State Extension at cschmidt@psu.edu.
