    Urban Marine Science: A 10-Year Retrospective

    Since arriving at Brooklyn College 10 years ago, Brett Branco has been introducing high school students, college students and teachers to the urban estuary in their back yard. Engaging students in authentic marine science research is a transformational experience for both teachers and students in urban settings. Brett will share his experiences researching microplastics, marine debris, and water quality in New York City, and discuss future opportunities for partnerships between K-12 and higher education

    Side dishes and desserts are welcomed and appreciated.  If you’d like to bring something to share, please indicate the item when you register. Thank you for considering continuing our tradition of deliciousness.

    Conover Street is a one way Street and it goes the wrong way, away from the Barge. Take either Van Brunt Street all the way toward the water, to Fairway, or take Columbia Street toward IKEA, and it turns into Hacket Street, by IKEA. It turns right and becomes Beard Street. Make a left onto Van Brunt Street and follow it down to Fairway. Make a right turn into Fairway's Parking lot. The barge is across the street. The gate may be open for additional parking over the weekend. If not park in Fairway. There is a small pedestrian gate to get to the large red barge.  Any problems, call our host Dave Sharps: (718) 938-2644.

    Seating is LIMITED!

    Guests $10.  Members free!
