In its 12th season, Science Saturdays at the LBIF continues to partner with local experts to tackle todays’ most pressing scientific, environmental, and sustainability issues that directly affect our shore community and the Barnegat Bay. Science Saturdays are structured to be interactive and informative (and sometimes hands-on) presentations in an informal atmosphere.
