Please join us on Zoom for our:

State of the Harbor Event

April 1st, 6:00pm ET

sign up for our emails for details regarding State of the Harbor.

CSCR student research teams present their findings to the community and stakeholders. In years when we meet in person, guests would visit each group to learn about our eelgrass meadows, harbor currents, indicators of watershed pollution, trash patterns, what lives out beyond the flats, shellfish populations, and whether Bassing Beach island is on the move.   Beginning in 2020, we moved our State of the Harbor event to Zoom, with plenty of opportunities to interact and comment at the end.

Please join us on Zoom for a new lecture on:

Blurred Lines between “The Environment” and “Me”

April 15th, 5:00pm ET

Register here on Eventbrite

The saying “you are what you eat” conveys that your health is determined by the quality—healthy or unhealthy—of your eating habits. Let’s extend that concept to our neighborhoods and the environment. We can try out ideas like “you are where you live,” or “the health of your environment depends on how it is treated.” Many people are fortunate to live in clean, green, healthy neighborhoods, but how do we keep them healthy? How can we improve polluted areas? How do we keep our planet livable? To begin addressing these questions, we will discuss nutrients and micronutrients found in our food, our bodies, and all living things. We will also think about environmental toxins and greenhouse gases. As we begin to imagine sustainable solutions to environmental issues, we can learn from biological mechanisms found in nature—they can teach us and help us.


Our lectures are free presentation seminars and discussion events hosted by the Center for Student Coastal Research (CSCR), a nonprofit organization located in Cohasset on Boston’s South Shore. CSCR educates students in environmental sciences, encourages environmental awareness, and promotes activism.

General attendance and participation is comlimentary, tax deductible donations are welcome.

If you are interested in actively participating in the lecture series program, please contact the organizer Dr. Carsten Haber, CSCR board member.
