The latest edition of the program’s Reporter annual report focuses on the various ways that Sea Grant uses science to serve the Delaware coast.

“Delaware Sea Grant promotes the wise use, conservation and management of marine and coastal resources while also supporting economic growth,” said Nancy Targett, director of Delaware Sea Grant and dean of UD’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment

A new strategic planning initiative, faculty achievements, diversity efforts and STAR Campus programs were among the topics discussed during the Board of Trustees' semiannual meeting.

Lifelong learning registration, open houses

Registration is going on now at all locations of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes at the University of Delaware.

This year’s Reporter highlights research and outreach efforts focused on environmental pollutants, the coastal economy and natural hazard preparedness. Recent efforts include examining groundwater pollution related to various types of land use and developing an alternative bait to whole horseshoe crabs for catching eel and whelk. Sea Grant experts are also providing safety information to residents about coastal storms in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

Published annually, Reporter encourages readers to become informed, get involved and stay connected through various Sea Grant programs. Reporter readers who complete the readership survey will be entered in a drawing for Delaware Sea Grant’s Coastal Prize Package, which includes a stay at UD’s Virden Center in Lewes, Del.
