July 8, 2012 Shipboard and Shoreline Science
The crew of teachers from the Great Lakes Basin has assembled on the RV Lake Guardian for the Shipboard and Shoreline Science Cruise. We were helped to our rooms and were given our berthing assignments, and stowed our gear. Then, the fourteen of us met at the NOAA Marine Maritime Museum for the cruise logistics and briefings on walleye and invasive species of Lake Huron. Those DNR guys really know their stuff!! The cooks filled us with deliciousness. After dinner, we received a safety review and donned the ever-so memorable Gumby suits (pictured). Precisely at 19:00 we started backing out of the Alpena Harbor.
As we are on our adventure, we will continue blogging and would welcome feedback and questions, especially from any of our students who may be following our journey!
