Coast Day 2011:  Thousands visit UD's Hugh R. Sharp Campus to celebrate Delaware's coast

The promise of seafood, lectures, ship tours, kids’ activities and science demonstrations drew thousands of people to the University of Delaware’s Hugh R. Sharp Campus for Coast Day. The event, sponsored by UD’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment (CEOE) and the Delaware Sea Grant College Program, was held Sunday, Oct. 2.

“It was delightful to see so many people having fun while they learned about the work we do,” said Nancy Targett, CEOE dean and Delaware Sea Grant director.

A 35-year tradition, Coast Day lets visitors learn more about the state’s ocean and coastal resources as well as the work of CEOE researchers, Delaware Sea Grant, and their many partners. (full article)
