Research at the Reserve: The Underappreciated Rivers of Cape Cod


Virtual Event: Tuesday, March 9

6:30PM - 7:30PM

The Underappreciated Rivers of Cape Cod
Dr. Holmes studies rivers around the world, including in the Arctic and the tropics, but for this presentation he’ll be highlighting rivers closer to home. The Cape Cod Rivers Observatory focuses world class river science on these hidden treasures of the Cape. Hear what they’ve been finding out about the Quashnet and eight other rivers. Get introduced to the recently launched Science on the Fly, which aims to unite the fly fishing and science communities to study and protect rivers around the world.

Max Holmes, Deputy Director and Senior Scientist, Woodwell Climate Research Center

Join us from the comfort of your home for an informal evening learning about innovative research happening around Waquoit Bay. Each session you will meet a local scientist who will share how they do their research, what they are discovering, and how it applies to today’s issues. There will be ample time for questions and discussion.

Brew up a hot drink, settle down into your favorite armchair and join us to learn something new. We can’t provide the cookies this year, but each week we’ll provide a favorite staff cookie recipe you can try on your own.

Please register below; a zoom link will be emailed to you prior to the presentation.
