After months of training, a new class of UNH Marine Docents officially graduated during a virtual recognition ceremony on May 4, 2021. These new members participated in our first-ever virtual training sessions. Their continued engagement through the hours of screen time and Zoom meetings is a testament to their perseverance and dedication to our program. 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 9 members of the newest class of UNH Marine Docents!
