"A tale of two harbors: Rockland by the mud, Rockport by the seaweed".
Wednesday, April 2, 2014 6-7:30 pm in the Belfast Free library's 3rd Floor Conference Room. Free and open to all
Join the Friends of Penobscot Bay in the Belfast Free Library's 3rd floor conference room on Wednesday February 5th , to consider the incredible differences between two bay floors waters only a few miles apart
A tale of two harbors: takes you by underwater video to Rockland Harbor's lobster burrow-riddled mud and its triple canopy bouldertop kelp forests, near its breakwater, then down the steep rock walls off Rockport's Deadman's Point, to colorful rolling hills and vales of multiple seaweed species, bryozoans and more, as verdant and lovely as can be.
In this third event in our Winter 2014 series, we'll take a look at how differences in water circulation and depth have produced entirely different but equally successful ecosystems in our mysterious Penobscot Bay - and ponder what changes in these two habitat types we may expect as the water warms and turns less alkaline
