Some of our Science & Stewardship staff have taken time out of their busy schedules to engage in ecology education at a social distance. These methods of outreach in the times of Covid are creative ways to show our local & Off-island fans what research and ecology work we’ve been up to in quarantine.
Dr. Jen Karberg gave a virtual presentation titled Coastal Resilience: Important & Function of Natural Buffers and hosted by the Maria Mitchell Association Science Speaker Series. Follow the links above or find the embedded video below
Kelly Omand gave an online presentation and botany adventure titled Fabulous Flora of Nantucket which was hosted by the Nantucket Atheneum. Follow the link above or enjoy the embedded video below.
Karen Beattie also gave an online presentation about American Oystercatcher Natural History & Ecology for the Nantucket Atheneum.
Our Science for Members Excursions along with our Mornings for Member Walks are running at limited capacity due to the State restrictions on group size, but spaces are open to our members on a first-come-first-serve basis. These walks are scheduled through September and are a great way to get out on our properties and learn first-hand science from our researchers and ecologists. We may add additional walks or extra days depending on the demand. Follow our Calendar of Events to stay up to date on new events that are added.
We have also created some quick and handy narrated guides to Seasonal Wildflowers, Turtles, Snakes, Shorebirds, and Endangered Species of Nantucket! These are currently distributed through our social media (@ackconservation on Instagram & Facebook). So follow us to see more of that ecology knowledge in action!
