For the third year in a row please join us to help Cornell Cooperative Extension Marine Program celebrate the latest publication of their magazine and be part of a special screening of the latest episode of On the Water & In The Field.
On the Water + In the Field is a news magazine show produced by Cornell Cooperative Extension Marine Program that seeks to educate the public on current projects, issues, and research pertaining to our marine environment. The episode to be screened at this event features stories covering topics including, shellfish restoration, horseshoe crab research, coastal resiliency projects, community Back to the Bays collaborations, and more!
Guests will be invited to the East Lawn to mingle with Cornell Cooperative Extension staff and collaborators featured in the show following the screening, while enjoying a raw bar featuring local oysters, Borghese Vineyard’s Rosé for the Bay (which benefits the work of CCE Marine Program!) along with offerings from 230 Elm Catering.
Come experience and enjoy a soothing, deeply relaxing, immersive Sound Meditation with Daniel Lauter, using hand selected exquisite crystal bowls and gongs, Tibetan and Himalayan bells, rain sticks, and more. Wellness @SAC has been made possible thanks to the generosity of the Michael and Annie Falk Foundation.
