The Maine Sea Grant College Program at the University of Maine is a partnership between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the State of Maine. Since 1971, Maine Sea Grant has supported marine and coastal research, outreach, and education for Maine people. In partnership with Cooperative Extension, a team of place-based marine extension professionals work on issues of importance to Maine’s coastal communities.
Maine Sea Grant is represented on the Science Working Group of the Acadia Centennial Task Force, with planning underway for several science-themed events throughout 2016.
In partnership with WERU-FM, Maine Sea Grant presents an occasional audio series based on the monthly public affairs program, Coastal Conversations, that airs the fourth Friday of each month. “Coastal Conversations in Acadia” will air throughout 2016, and be archived at http://archives.weru.org/category/acadia-coastal-conversations/
