UNC COASTAL STUDIES INSTITUTE TO HOST “SCIENCE ON THE SOUND” LECTURE ON BEACH COMBING BIOLOGY ON MARCH 23, 2017





The UNC Coastal Studies Institute (UNC CSI) is hosting a lecture on North Carolina’s beachcombing as part of its  “Science on the Sound” lecture series.  This series, held monthly, highlights information on coastal topics and issues in northeast North Carolina.  This month, the program will feature Terri Kirby Hathaway, Marine Education Specialist with North Carolina Sea Grant. Mrs. Kirby Hathaway’s presentation, entitled “Beachcombing Biology: The Stories Your Beach Finds Tell”, will feature beachcombing tips and identification of some of the common things found when scouring the beaches of North Carolina.  The program will be held at 6:00PM on Thursday, March 23 at the UNC Coastal Studies Institute located at 850 NC 345 in Wanchese, NC.  The presentation is free and the public is welcomed and encouraged to attend.
Everything you find on the beach has a story behind it, whether the object is natural or manmade.  Discover some of the tales behind treasures found while beachcombing on our beaches.  Explore seashells and the shell-makers, the secrets of crabs and corals, and the mysteries behind floating items that are blown onto the seashore!
This program will be streamed live at http://coastalstudiesinstitute.org/outreach/live-streaming. and the online viewing audience will be able to ask the presenter questions via an online chat room.
