Seabirds to Pollinators: Research and Art at Bowdoin’s Scientific Station on Kent Island
April 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
To be live streamed – details coming soon!
The scientific station on Kent Island (New Brunswick, Canada) was founded by Bowdoin College in 1936. Since then Kent Island has been an active research station involving students and faculty from US and Canadian institutions working on eiders, marine ecology, Leach’s storm-petrels, savannah sparrows, forest ecology, tree swallows, and pollinators.
The BSS Kent Island Director and Bowdoin Biology Professor, Patricia Jones, will tell the remarkable story of the history of the station and discoveries made by researchers on Kent Island. She will also discuss how artists in residence contribute to the life of the station and the communication of science and environmental issues.
