rain or shine, the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science’s (UMCES) Horn Point Laboratory invites the public to a FREE Open House on Saturday, October 13, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. “Sustainable Solutions through Science” is this year’s theme. “This is the best day of the year for the community to learn about the science of the Bay. Everyone at the lab is on deck to explain their research with activities and displays that make it easy to understand,” said Horn Point Laboratory Director Mike Roman. A scavenger hunt will enhance the kid’s exploration of exhibits and campus activities. Come aboard UMCES research vessel Rachel Carson and explore new advances in aquaculture at the boat basin. Hop on the hayride for a campus tour and learn how much energy is being produced by the 10-acre solar field. It is a great day filled with educational activities for all ages. Children will receive a free t-shirt.
