VIMS announces February events

The Virginia Institute of Marine Science has announced its Discovery Labs and After Hours lecture events for the month.

The next Discovery Labs will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 22, at the VIMS Catlett-Burrus Research & Education Lab. The lab topic will be on coastal acidification. Explore how waters are becoming more acidic and how that impacts ecosystems and everything that lives in them through a series of hands-on activities and experiments. VIMS grad student, Anthony Himes, will talk about his research on this topic in the Chesapeake Bay.

Discovery Labs are free, family-friendly programs provided by the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (CBNERR) at VIMS.

Designed with elementary-aged youth and their parents in mind, each lab focuses on a different topic related to the Chesapeake Bay and the local environment and includes exhibits, demonstrations and hands-on activities, as well as a presentation by an expert on the topic.
