Dalhousie SEASIDE Summer Courses at the HLC

A large part of what the Harrison Lewis Centre does is host student groups, giving them a space for learning, living, and access to the natural history of Nova Scotia through the surrounding landscape we're lucky enough to work with.  June 18-26 saw Dalhousie's summer SEASIDE program (link after article) take full use of our facilities. SEASIDE is for biology and marine biology classes to have the opportunity to do real fieldwork in the environments they're studying! We had the privilege of hosting BIOL3622 Ornithology with Sarah Gutowsky earlier in the summer, which a previous post discusses, and the last few weeks we've had MARI3604 Feild Aquaculture with Diego Ibarra, BIOL3328 Medical Entomology with Tatiana Rossolimo, BIOL3664 Intertidal Ecology with Isabelle Aube, and BIOL3633 GIS in Ecology with Peter Bush & Jen Strang. Every one of these groups was amazing, and a joy to have at the centre! Thank you all for being considerate tenants & incredibly fun people; we always look forward to hosting the SEASIDE summer students and faculty! We hope you all had a great a time as we did meeting everyone, and enjoyed the opportunity to learn out here! Until next year :D
