Discovering the Cape Cod Shore: an intro to marine plants
​and animals
Speaker: Gilbert Newton

Discover the fascinating diversity of life at the edge of the sea with Gil Newton as he takes you on a tour of the Cape Cod seashore, discussing many of the common plants and animals that make up this essential marine habitat.

You’ll learn about the various types of seaweeds, their uses, and ecological values. In addition, common shellfish such as quahogs, razor clams, and scallops will be discussed. The economic and environmental significance of horseshoe crabs will also be part of this tour as well as many other species, from jellyfish to coastal crabs to sponges.

Find out how these and other living things survive in one of the most hostile environments on the Cape. Learn about their unique adaptations as they interact closely with the physical environment. After this talk, you will want to explore these areas on your own once again.

Programs and performance dates and times are subject to change or cancellation without notice.
