in Northeast

Happy start to the new school year to all of the teachers!  This is going to be an exciting couple of years with a fantastic conference in Tampa May 1-3 followed by FMSEA hosting the the NMEA conference in 2016!


Last Saturday several of the Northeast members alongs with spouses and kids took a ride on the Amelia Island Eco Tour.  On this trip we learned some of the history of the island and the shrimping industry and then we had the opportunity to pull a trawl net to view some of the marine organisms in the area.



Would anyone be interested in joining me on a kayak outing in St Augusting in early November?  Email me at if you are interested.

Sept 13 there will be a mulit-regional outing at the Marine Science Station.  Click here to register:


Oct 4 from 2-4 Kathy Russell and I will be hosting an Aquatic Species collection workshop at the Omni on Amelia Island.  If you need to get your collection certificate or renew you can click here to register:  :


Keep me posted with things happening at your school or facility.  I would love to hear from you!!
