WEBINAR FOR EDUCATORS
Thursday, February 13, 2020
4:00pm - 5:00pm PST
In this free one-hour webinar, educators will learn about the problem of Ocean Acidification (OA), hear from NOAA researchers about how OA is impacting crabs and other species in the Pacific Northwest, and discover how Oregon is responding to OA. We'll also share a new OA high school curriculum, and have time for questions.
