Ecological Role of Bivalve Poplulations in Newport Bay

Project Summary: March 17,18,24,25 from 9 am to 4 pm. This project is a directed research experience opportunity to study local bivalve populations under the guidance of UC Irvine, Orange Coast College and Fullerton College faculty. Students will be exposed to intertidal sampling techniques, bivalve filtration experiments, water quality analyses, and the use of computer models to assess the potential effect a restoration project could have on a local estuary. Faculty Mentors: Peter Bryant (UCI), Robert Ellis (Fullerton College), Robert Hammersley (Soka University of America), Dennis Kelley (Orange Coast College), Katie Kilkenny (Orange Coast College)
The program is sponsored by Engage in Stem (Fullerton College), Science Weekend Investgations and Field Trips (SWIFT) and the Newport Bay Conservancy. For complete information and to register visit www.EngageInStemFC.com.
