Scott Benson "Leatherback sea turtles in the California Current: Why leatherbacks cross the Pacific"- American Cetacean Society - SF Bay Chapter External Event Page
Sausalito, California
With their immense size and peculiar appearance, leatherback turtles resemble species that inhabited Earth in the distant past. A swimming and diving machine, they are uniquely adapted for life at sea. This ancient mariner is the most widely distributed sea turtle, spanning tropical and subarctic waters worldwide. The endangered western Pacific leatherback turtle engages in the longest migration of any aquatic, air-breathing vertebrate. These turtles travel more than 7,000 miles annually between their western Pacific nesting beaches and their eastern Pacific foraging areas. The presentation will cover the biology and ecology of leatherback turtles, the current status of the population, challenges to recovery, and the actions we can take to help. Scott Benson, Research Fishery Biologist, NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center, Marine Turtle Ecology and Assessment Program. Scott Benson MSC is a marine ecologist with extensive at-sea research experience throughout the world's oceans. Stationed at Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, he is co-investigator of the SWFSC's leatherback turtle ecology program and coordinates research on leatherbacks in central California and the Western Pacific. His education includes a B.A. from San Diego State University and an M.S. in Marine Science from Moss Landing Marine Laboratories. Since 1985, Scott's research projects have included integrated studies of marine mammals, seabirds and leatherback turtles, with emphasis on abundance, distribution, ecology, and oceanographic patterns influencing the occurrence of these species. Scott has designed, coordinated, and analyzed results from ongoing surveys of marine birds and mammals in Monterey Bay , including collaborative at-sea ecosystem studies. He also coordinated a Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary program to monitor beach deposition rates of marine vertebrates. Results from these studies have successfully documented natural and anthropogenic impacts on seabirds and marine mammals. Recent field work has included systematic aeria

Lecture: "All in the Family: Diomed, Sir Archie, and Henry" by Jim Beckwith External Event Page
Raleigh, North Carolina
The Joel Lane Museum House presents a lecture on "All in the Family: Diomed, Sir Archie, and Henry, from the 1780 Epsom Derby to the Great Match Race of 1823" by Jim Beckwith. //// In a remarkable forty years, from the close of the American Revolution to an omen of the Civil War, three generations of race horses made a great impact on America. Just in time for the Kentucky Derby, Jim Beckwith tells the story. Diomed, the great English racer who came to Virginia late in life, was the father of Sir Archie. Sir Archie, after coming from Virginia to North Carolina, became the great foundation sire of the American thoroughbred. Then his son, Henry, foaled near Halifax, North Carolina, representing the South, ran against Diomed's grandson, American Eclipse, representing the North, in the Great Match Race of 1823 on Long Island. Sixty thousand people attended this race, which was the first sporting event to capture the imagination of the young republic, causing Congress to adjourn and the stock exchange to close.
Public: $16; Members of the Joel Lane Historical Society & Students: $11

Grant Awardees Kaytlin Ingman & Samantha Jane Cope - American Cetacean Society - SF Bay Chapter External Event Page
Sausalito, California
"Evaluating the influence of vessel noise on the underwater soundscape of San Francisco Bay." Vessel traffic and marine mammal habitat overlap in the heavily urbanized San Francisco Bay. This traffic potentially threatens marine mammals in a number of ways, namely vessel collisions and acoustic harm. With a recent influx of cetacean species in San Francisco Bay, assessing these threats is essential. By integrating underwater acoustic data with the Automatic Identification System (AIS) and marine radar vessel tracking technology, we can begin to understand how vessel traffic influences cetacean habitat and the degree to which species may be at risk. //// Samantha Cope is pursuing her Master of Marine Science degree at San Francisco State University's Estuary & Ocean Science Center in Tiburon, California. A student of Dr. Ellen Hines, Sam studies how vessels use San Francisco Bay across space and time and potential implications for marine mammal conservation. Sam received her Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science from the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. ///// "Long Term Trends in Baleen Whale Observations Near the Farallon Islands" ///// Large baleen whales seasonally use the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary as a migration corridor and feeding ground during the productive upwelling season. Both basin scale climate patterns and local oceanographic conditions influence the timing and strength of local upwelling and nutrient quality. Modeling how these factors influence both the abundance and presence of humpback, blue, and gray whales can aid in the conservation of these protected species. We can also use these models to assess anthropogenic threats such as the increase in entanglements. ///// Kaytlin Ingman is currently a student of Ellen Hines pursuing a Masters of Marine Science degree at the Estuary & Ocean Science Center at the Romberg Tiburon Campus of San Francisco State University. Kaytlin studies how the abundance and presence of baleen whales is influenced by climate

Sailor Made Exhibition External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
This new exhibition features more than 60 items made by sailors or artisans at sea. For centuries, sailors have used their leisure time to create objects and artworks that document life at sea, commemorate historic events or simply celebrate the extraordinary skill of the maker. Scrimshaw ? carved or engraved whale ivory or walrus tusks, made by whalers ? is one of the most well-known, sailor-made arts. Over hundreds of years, many began additional hobbies using materials they had on hand to fill their time while traveling the oceans. Visitors to the exhibition will see works of art, scrimshaw, and decorative knotwork, commemorative and household items that will provide a glimpse into the daily lives of those who made their livelihoods on the sea.
Free with Museum admission.

To MyPlate and Beyond External Event Page
Montezuma, Kansas
Visitors of all ages will get a full serving of helpful, practical advice on how to plan healthy meals when they go through a new Purdue Extension exhibit on display at the Stauth Memorial Museum from March 11, 2018 through May 27, 2018. ///// The exhibit "To MyPlate and Beyond" illustrates the U.S. Department of Agriculture's tool that emphasizes the five food groups that are part of a healthy diet: fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins, and dairy. ///// "Visitors will learn how easy it is to shop for food, grow their own, plan meals, and eat together," said Lisa Graves, Extension specialist in the College of Health and Human Sciences' Department of Nutrition Science. "From child to adult, the exhibit will feature tips and ideas for everyone to build a healthy plate." ///// Participants will "travel" with seven-year-old Max and his dog, Munch, in a flying saucer as they explore simple reminders and other information about eating well. Included are hands-on interactive games that help visitors understand the exhibit's key messages, such as make half of your plate fruits and vegetables, switch to fat-free or low-fat milk, and enjoy your food but eat less. ///// Max & Munch first visit a very cool supermarket and run around to the five areas of MyPlate - fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins, and dairy - each featuring fun hands-on activities. Next stop, a community garden where Max learns that even in an urban setting you can use large containers to grow vegetables in your backyard or on your balcony. From there they spy drive-thru and sit down restaurants: these areas encourage family conversation about making healthy choices when eating out. And for some exercise Max and Munch try their turn on the "Hot Plate" to see what they've learned on their journey so far. ///// What's on MyPlate?, a video from Purdue University will accompany the exhibit. It provides practical, everyday examples of how to follow the United States Department of Agriculture's MyPlate nutritional guidelines. Appx. 36 min. ///// The Purdue Ag
