Coast Kids: Explore Plankton at Assateague Island
Explore the amazing world of tiny critters living in the Sinepuxent Bay! We will catch plankton with specialized nets and use microscopes to look at the strange and wonderful world of minuscule animals and plants living in the bay water. At the beginning of the event, we will take a short walk from the EEC to the Assateague State Park boat ramp to catch plankton. We will then come back to the EEC and identify our catch using microscopes with digital displays. In case the weather is terribly rainy or blustery, you will be provided with plankton samples and stay inside for the entire event.
