CSCR's State of the Harbor
CSCR's Signature Community Outreach and Education Event
where our students shine and the community learns
 
...and this year, you get to participate in a number of townwide planning efforts 
 
May 2, 2019
 6:00 - 8:00 pm at Willcutt Commons, 91 Sohier Street, Cohasset
(not at the sailing club!) 
 
CSCR student research teams will be presenting their findings. Visit each group to learn about our harbor currents, what lives out beyond the flats, what indicators of pollution can be found in our watershed, what kind of trash is most abundant, shellfish findings, and whether Bassing Beach island is on the move.
 
Newly appointed Superintendent Patrick Sullivan will talk about the role of project-based learning in Education and others will bring you up to speed on the current endeavors of the the town's Harbor Committee, the Cohasset Master Plan, the Municipal Vulnerabilities Program and State requirements.  Each entity will have an opportunity to explain how people who care about the harbor and the town can participate.  
 
Both CSCR and all of our panelist groups are looking for stakeholder involvement.  So residents of all varieties should participate. It's a great opportunity to meet the people who want to integrate your opinions.
