Exciting Programs On Deck for July at the Cape May Point Science Center!

The Cape May Point Science Center is a new reserach facility, event space, and science hub.

From the Cape May Point Science Center

The Cape May Point Science Center kicks off July with a dynamic lecture by its International Science Correspondent, Darragh Corcoran on Wednesday, July 3 from 3 to 4 p.m. To learn more about Darragh and his work with the Science Center, visit https://www.capemaypointsciencecenter.org/correspondents.

Darragh will present on his current PhD project, which aims to create “Extent Mapping” for all of the ecosystems from Ireland’s coastline to the outer continental shelf edge. This mapping is the first step in assessing the environmental condition and economic value for each ecosystem type within this area of the ocean, which is larger than the state of Texas.

In his talk, Darragh will draw compelling parallels between the challenges faced by the US East Coast and the Irish West Coast. Both regions are navigating the complex balance between preservation, recreation, and the exploitation of their vast marine resources. The discussion will highlight the shared decisions and dilemmas on either side of the Atlantic, emphasizing the crucial need for Marine Protected Areas amid growing demands for offshore wind installations. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain insights into how both American and Irish coastal regions are managing their marine environments in the face of similar pressures and opportunities.

July also offers the Cape May community a chance to find hidden treasure when the Cape May Point Science Center hosts the 68th Annual Cape May Civic Club Bazaar from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 6. This event benefits the Cape May Point Volunteer Fire Department and the CMP Civic Club and promises something for everyone. Come check it out!

That same night, the Science Center will hold the first of its two July Stargazing events starting at 8:30 p.m. Come tour the night sky with ACCC Professor Dr. Frank Toriello. Bring a beach chair, binoculars (optional), and a wonder for the cosmos!

The Cape May Point Science Center is also offering four-week Art in Nature classes for young artists 10 to 17 years old on Wednesday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. starting July 3. Pre-registration is required! And don’t forget to mark your calendar for our first-ever Family Science Night on Thursday, July 11 from 5 to 7 p.m. This fun night will engage science lovers of all ages in hands-on activities centered around animals, plants, nature art, and more!
