Field Trips

Isles of Shoals Marine Lab

We will take an all-day excursion to The Isle of Shoals Marine Lab located on Appledore Island. Appledore Island is the largest of the nine islands in the Isles of Shoals archipelago located in what's known as the Gulf of Maine to biologists, geologists and oceanographers. Not only is Appledore home of Shoals Marine Laboratory, but its waters, shoreline, rocks and brambles host a myriad of marine and terrestrial animals and plants. The intertidal and subtidal zones are rich in species of algae, fish and invertebrates.
