Bay Informed | Marine Plants
March 22, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Every third breath you take is from phytoplankton (‘fīdōˈplaNGktən/) – tiny aquatic plants. Just like plants on land, they produce oxygen and make up the base of the food chain. They even play an important role in the Earth’s climate.
Stephanie Anderson and Olivia Ahern from the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography will be sharing what these amazing plants tell us about the natural world and why they’re so important.
All ages welcome!
Light refreshments will be served.
The Bay Informed Discussion Series is sponsored by Rhode Island Sea Grant in Partnership with GSO. This series is held every third Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. at URI’s Graduate School of Oceanography’s Bay campus in Narragansett. These events are designed for the community to get involved and learn more about research at GSO.
