Sarah presents our community science project

On Friday, July 16th, graduate student Sarah Risley will present the work she is leading in collaboration with the town of Damariscotta, Lincoln Academy and other community partners on “Community Science and Stewardship in Maine Estuaries.” Risley’s research builds on collaborative work to which other Leslie Lab members have contributed, including Melissa Britsch and Kara Pellowe. The goal of the broader, multi-year project is to support local shellfish management using a unique blend of natural and social science approaches, while providing opportunities for local students to get involved in science and stewardship in the Damariscotta River estuary.
