EDUCATION AND OUTREACH

Our Education & Outreach program strives to create a balanced relationship between our community and the natural world. The program works by engaging community members with the marine ecosystem in a meaningful way, with the goal of promoting and enhancing environmental stewardship.

To encourage the development of Maine’s future marine scientists, QBC supports senior-level research projects by undergraduate students attending any university in the state. Since 2016, we have allocated $10,000 from our annual budget to support student capstone projects. Additionally, we work with local high schools to create hands-on opportunities for the next generation of environmental stewards.

QBC also hosts a number of educational events and workshops. Check the “Take Action” page on our website and follow us on social media for upcoming opportunities.
