WANCHESE — Ever wonder about the origins of various holes found in common beach items, like sand and seashells? During this month’s “Science on the Sound” lecture series hosted by Coastal Studies Institute, or CSI, there’s an opportunity to get to the bottom of the “hole” story.
Terri Kirby Hathaway, marine education specialist with North Carolina Sea Grant, will explain during her presentation, “The Hole Story of the Beach,” set for 6 p.m. May 24 at CSI, the holes found on the beach, the critters who make them, and the purposes they serve.
This series, held monthly by CSI, highlights information on coastal topics and issues in northeast North Carolina.
The public is encouraged to attend the program to be held at CSI, 850 N.C. 345 in Wanchese.
Hathaway has been a marine educator on the Outer Banks for 35 years. She has been in her current role as marine education specialist at Sea Grant for 15 years. Additionally, Hathaway is active in numerous professional organizations from the local to national level and is a co-author of “North Carolina’s Amazing Coast,” a children’s’ book featuring habitats, flora and fauna of the state’s coastal areas.
This program is to be streamed live and the online viewing audience will be able to ask the presenter questions via an online chat room.
