Participants will get a hands-on educational experience and will leave with a better understanding of native and non-native marine species in Rhode Island and their impacts on the local environment. Wear clothes and footwear that can be dirtied. To RSVP, e-mail rhodeislandseagrant@gmail.com or call 401-874-6805 and leave your name and contact information.
