Cafe Scientifique- “Mangroves: Superheroes of our Coastal Ocean”, by Hannah Morrissette, Ph.D., SERC

January 26 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm


Event Title: Annapolis Science Cafe @ 49 West, “Mangroves: Superheroes of our Coastal Ocean”, by Hannah Morrissette, Ph.D., SERC

Event Description: This science talk titled, “Mangroves: Superheroes of our Coastal Ocean”, by Hannah Morrissette, Ph.D., Coastal Wetland Biogeochemist, at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC). The event is hosted by Annapolis Cafe Scientifique at 49 West. Mangroves, or the forests of the sea, are important environments for coastlines around the world. Their distinctive ability to survive in salty, coastal water leads to a long list of irreplaceable ecosystem benefits. Mangroves stabilize the coast and protect it from storms, provide food and habitat for fish, and pull carbon dioxide out of the air to store it long-term. Please join Dr. Morrissette for a presentation on her most exciting coastal research (and her best photos!) to learn more about these mighty ecosystems: what they do for us and what we can do for them.

RESERVE AT SEAT FOR THE TALK BY CALLING 49 WEST AT 410-626-9796. For more information on this talk, and to access the zoom link if you cannot attend in person, contact annapoliscafesci@gmail.com
