Trails and Sails - Beach Seining Demonstration
11:00 am, Forest River Park, Salem
What fish live in Salem Harbor? At this beach seining demonstration, Salem Sound Coastwatch staff and volunteers will walk a large seining net into the water and then drag it back to shore where we'll lay it out, gather around to examine the catch, and talk about what we found. Seining is used by marine scientists to gather information about species living in a body of water. SSCW staff will answer questions and share information about the Salem Sound estuary, marine habitats and the ecology of Salem Sound.
Free and all ages welcome.

October 9th - High Tide at Noon
Gulf of Maine King Tides Photo Contest
Participate in the first-ever regional King Tides Photo Contest, capturing images of how the astronomical high tide affects coastal areas, including wharves, utilities, causeways, marshes, and beaches. King Tides illustrate what may become - with sea-level rise - the new tidal norm. Contest details can be found on the Gulf of Maine King Tides website. This contest is a collaboration between organizations from three states and two Canadian provinces. MassBays is the Massachusetts partner for the event.
