TRACKING GHOST FORESTS:
On your next visit to the Aquarium this fall, you can help track the changes of ghost forests during a community science project. All you need is your cell phone!
We're participating with other Department of Natural and Cultural Resources sites in installing a CHRONOLOGY MONITORING STATION to collect habitat data changes over time, and to assess climate change impacts on our site.
You'll notice a cell phone mounting station on our marsh boardwalk. All you have to do is place your cell phone in the station, take a picture, and email it to Chronolog.
You can help document the forest over time at the Aquarium and at NC State University, the Museum of Life and Science, Bald Head Island Conservancy, Hammock’s Beach and Fort Macon, all which have Chronolog photo stations.
