Marine Docents are volunteer guides to the marine world who present SeaTrek programs
in schools and throughout the community, guide students in marine experimentation
at sea, teach aboard the UNH research vessel Gulf Challenger, and give tours
of UNH marine laboratories.
Now in its 26th year, the program offers scientific and historic training about
our marine world on Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning in September. Marine Docents
are taught topics ranging from aquaculture to zooplankton by university faculty,
extension educators and other experts in the marine field.
No prior experience is required to become a docent. Ideal candidates have a keen
interest in the ocean, a sense of stewardship for the marine world, and a desire
to be an enthusiastic guide in exploring that world with others.
The Marine Docent Program is sponsored by NH Sea Grant and UNH Cooperative Extension.
