Sumner Memorial High School students to present to shellfish committee in Gouldsboro March 20

Over the past year, Schoodic Institute worked closely with Sumner Memorial High School’s Pathways Program and with the town of Gouldsboro to support the town’s shellfish committee. The students received support from Mike Pinkham, Gouldsboro’s clam warden, Bill Zoellick, Schoodic Institute’s Education Research Director, and Kyle Pepperman, field scientist at the Downeast Institute. They gathered and analyzed experimental data that the shellfish committee will use to make decisions about seeding clam flats during 2019. The students will be presenting their analysis to the shellfish committee at the Gouldsboro Community Center on Pond Road at 6 PM on Wednesday, March 20.
