SHaring Our Research with Everyone (ShORE) is a symposium for students, scientists and community members interested in learning more about the state of the Indian River Lagoon.  Last year’s event was a great success with over 400 attendees learning about timely research presented by scientists and students. This year’s event is sponsored by the Daytona State College Institute for Marine and Environmental Studies, the Marine Discovery Center and Atlantic Center for the Arts. The date and location for this year’s event is: November 30, 2018, Brannon Civic CenterNew Smyrna Beach, Florida

The ShORE Team is most excited to announce that this year’s keynote speaker is Dr. Marcus Eriksen. Dr. Eriksen is an environmental scientist, educator and author committed to building stronger communities through art, science, adventure and activism. His award-winning books chronicle his rafting adventures down rivers and across oceans and highlight his experience as a veteran of war and a scientist for conservation. He is the co-founder of the 5 Gyres Institute and studies the global distribution and ecological impacts of plastic marine pollution, which has included expeditions sailing through all 5 subtropical gyres.

New this year will be an interactive art exhibit titled How Plastic are We? Atlantic Center for the Arts will be sponsoring the student-created exhibit, which is inspired by this year’s ocean-plastic theme.  For more information about Dr. Erikson and ShORE 2018, please visit the ShORE website.
