Boothbay Register highlights Mayer’s contributions to DMC after retirement
The Boothbay Register shared a press release from the Darling Marine Center at the University of Maine about how Larry Mayer, a former professor of Oceanography at UMaine’s School of Marine Sciences, continues to contribute to the center after he retired in fall 2019. Mayer taught a senior college course titled “Humans and the Ever-changing Coast.” On Thursdays, 20 area senior citizens interested in learning about marine environment challenges joined Mayer for lectures and discussions at the center in Walpole. “This course was different than teaching undergraduate and graduate students. We focused more on discussion than on getting a certain amount of material covered or developing job skills,” he said.
