Saturday, February 17 – Snorkel Intro for Adults
Coral reef monitoring is our main snorkeling-based activity. This Saturday, we’re taking a step back to offer an opportunity to those who have always been interested in snorkeling, but are still a bit nervous about snorkeling at the beach. Sometimes it just takes some practice and review of basic water safety to boost your confidence (and comfort) in the water!
Join this free snorkel introduction from 2-4pm at the Agana Pool. We’ll go over water safety basics and review snorkeling gear, such as fitting your mask and swimming with fins. A Dive Master and lifeguard will lead and assist participants to build up those skills that just need a bit of practice before heading to the beach. Ages 14 and up may participate. Participants under 18 must have their parent/guardian fill out our liability release form. Forms will be available on site at class. Click here to sign up for this class.
Sunday, February 18 – Science Sunday
Join us for Science Sunday – 2pm at the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center in Sumay. Bob Bevacqua, professor of agriculture at UOG, will talk about the significance of breadfruit, or lemai in the Chamorro language. Learn more about its origins of lemai, its nutrional value, varied preparations, and more. Though this Science Sunday’s focus will be on Asan Ridge and our watersheds, our island is connected from ridge to reef. Culturally significant trees in our watersheds benefits both our communities and our reefs. This event is hosted by GCCRMP and the National Park Service. The event is free and open to the public. No registration required; seats available on a first come, first served basis. Hope to see you there!
