Adventure in Iceland?
The Seacoast Science Center will host a no-obligation presentation on its upcoming Icelandic Eco-Adventure on Tuesday, Jan. 30, at 6 p.m. The trip, which will highlight the island’s most amazingly beautiful and dramatic contrasts, will be held Sept. 18 to Sept. 27. Located along the Mid-Atlantic ridge at the juncture of the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans, Iceland is undergoing continuous transformation. As our atmosphere warms, Iceland’s glaciers are melting, and the land is rebounding and rising. During this all-inclusive eco-adventure, you will witness this firsthand and gain a better understanding of our one world ocean and how communities across the globe are addressing climate change and coastal concerns. The trip preview event is free of charge; however, registration is requested. For more information and to register visit seacoastsciencecenter.org.
