THIS IS A HYBRID EVENT.
Join us back on campus for a Discovery Lab, or join us virtually from anywhere for the presentation!
Slippery, slimy, and found in the Chesapeake Bay! The American Eel migrate from the middle of the Atlantic Ocean to the Chesapeake Bay and its local waterways. Although a stable species, these eels have been impacted by disease and parasites in our waters. Learn about the current research being conducted by VIMS PhD candidate, Aman Kohli!
Discovery Labs are free, family-friendly programs provided each month 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 our local environment and includes exhibits, demonstrations, and hands-on activities as well as a short presentation (from 6:30-7:00 PM) by an expert on the topic.
At this time, we are expecting a hybrid event, but registrants will be notified in advance if the event moves to a virtual-only format.
Reservations to this event are required due to limited space.
At this time, masks are required for all individuals indoors during this event. We ask that you monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 in the days leading up to this event and attend the Discovery Lab from your home via the live-webinar if you are experiencing symptoms.
