August 28 - Ride the Glory and Mysteries of the Water

image8

 Our adventure focuses on plankton, the base of our local marine food web. The children will join Captain Dave on the Glory and venture out into the bay to conduct a plankton tow. Once returned to the dock, everyone's favorite science teacher, Mr. Bob Jester, will help the children observe and attempt to identify the plankton that was collected. They'll see and understand why if the plankton disappears the food webs will collapse !   


  

An educator, navigator, author and owner of the solar powered “Glory”, Dave Berson is a Master Mariner. Dave can be found every Saturday morning teaching a group of local children everything nautical in the Little Red Schoolhouse in Greenport Village. 

  

The extraordinary thing about this extraordinary man, is that he is so modest. Although retired now, native Greenporter, Bob Jester, is still a most acclaimed and beloved science teacher.

He recently headed the committee and was instrumental in developing the children’s room, Captain Bob’s Quarterdeck, that was, in part, sponsored by the PDLEP.
