Cashes Ledge: Maine’s Lost World

February 23, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

February 23 at 6:00 p.m. | Dr. Robert Steneck, Professor of Marine Sciences, University of Maine

This lecture will provide deep insight into Dr. Steneck’s extensive research on Cashes Ledge in the Gulf of Maine, which, when he observed it, was as close to Maine’s pristine ecosystem prior to European arrival as one could find. Learn how Cashes Ledge, a nutrient-rich ecosystem 80 miles off the Maine coast, has survived when many other marine ecosystems suffer the effects of warming waters and human activity.

This free lecture is presented in conjunction with our current exhibit, SeaChange: Darkness and Light in the Gulf of Maine, presented in partnership with Gulf of Maine EcoArts. Preregistration is required!
