Coastal Discovery Museum to start marine science expedition in May

The Coastal Discovery Museum has announced a new marine science expedition that will start in May. The two-hour expedition aboard research vessel SPARTINA with marine biologist Amber Kuehn will run from 10 a.m. until noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays, according to a museum news release.

Participants will observe science in nature and under the microscope, through displays of live organisms. The boat captain will have living specimens on board of common fish, crabs, shrimp and other animals that can be found in the water. A scientific explanation will accompany a trip through the marsh, the release said.

The cost is $35 for adults and $25 for children 12 and under. Space is limited and reservations are required. Call 843-689-6767, extension 223, or reserve your spot online at www.coastaldiscovery.org.
