Explaining Estuaries Team: Fall 2016

img_4557This team is helping people understand the magic, wonder and importance of estuaries! In partnership with the Charleston Marine Life Center and UO Office of Sustainability, students are designing compelling interpretive displays on salmon conservation, environmentally-sound dock installations, and estuarine ecology and management issues – especially pollution, ballast-water transport of invasive species, and the importance of estuaries as nurseries. The team is gaining a deep understanding of these issues, learning how to design engaging museum exhibits, then communicating their findings through a permanent display that will reach coastal visitors for years to come!
