Long Beach Island, NJ — The 14th season of Science Saturday begins this month. These informative, interactive presentations, held at the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences, focus on the local environment and issues that directly affect our shore community.
On Jan. 25, for the first session of 2020, LBIF will welcome both Rick Bushnell, president of ReClam the Bay, and Jennifer Haines, a teacher at Central Regional High School, along with members of the student body. This special two-part Science Saturday will lead into the Foundation’s next gallery show, “Weather.”
Bushnell will discuss “how to determine upcoming weather patterns, from how high it will flood to how long it will last,” LBIF explains. Haines, meanwhile, “will be sharing what our youth is being taught in school. Students will be presenting projects based on anthropogenic causes to Barnegat Bay’s decline.”
Science Saturday lectures run from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Foundation’s main building, unless otherwise noted. A schedule of all upcoming Science Saturday presentations is available online at lbifoundation.org/science/science-saturdays-3. Presentations will be held every Saturday through April 25, except for April 11.
Admission to Science Saturdays – organized by the LBIF Science Committee – is free for Foundation members. A $5 donation per person is requested from all other attendees.
LBIF is located at 120 Long Beach Blvd. in Loveladies.
