Looking forward to our upcoming adventure!

August 9, 2011

Organizing health forms, collecting journaling materials, charging camera batteries, confirming passwords for posting pictures, picking up the bus keys…all tasks that need to been done before we start our Marine Mammal Institute tomorrow. The flurry of last minute emails from participants indicates that we are all in the same boat, trying to make certain that we can  thoroughly engage in this trip by knowing that everything has been taken care of at work.

There is also a palpable sense of excitement as we anticipate learning about marine mammals, visiting aquariums, and gaining an understanding of climate change. Choosing what to pack highlights the diversity of the trip – sunscreen for the wild dolphin research afternoon, a windbreaker for the whale watch at Stellwagon Bank, warm socks for the Beluga encounter, and comfortable shoes for the explorations of aquariums and museums up and down the East Coast.

Look for the many voices of the participants on this adventure. We hope to share our experience via this blog, and welcome your questions as the trip progresses.

    Thanks for letting me be on board vicariously with the daily email briefings. I have my suitcase packed for an on-line adventure.
