2019 Marine Docent Collage

After months of training (including coronavirus pandemic disruptions), a new class of UNH Marine Docents officially graduated this month during a virtual recognition ceremony on August 4, 2020. The UNH Marine Docent Program is a volunteer-based marine science education effort managed jointly by NH Sea Grant and UNH Extension. Congratulations to the 17 members of the newest class of UNH Marine Docents!
