In keeping with the 2009 Coast Day theme “Climate Change and Our Coast,” organizers created a special exhibit called “Climate Connections.” The exhibit explored links between human activity and climate change and highlighted what is being done to research and resolve some of the issues.
Visitors to the exhibit were asked to illustrate their ideas for combating climate change in Delaware — organizers provided paper and crayons and guests wrote down or drew their ideas and hung them on a gallery wall set up in the exhibit. The result was a collection of bright, creative, thought-provoking, and humorous entries. Click on the link below to see just a few of the wonderful ideas that were in the gallery that day!
A 33-year tradition, Coast Day is sponsored by the University of Delaware’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment (CEOE) and the Delaware Sea Grant College Program. It was held Sunday, Oct. 4, at UD’s Hugh R. Sharp Campus in Lewes. The event lets visitors learn more about the state’s ocean and coastal resources as well as the work of CEOE researchers, Delaware Sea Grant, and their many partners.
