Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition (BBWC) and the Island Institute will host “Climate of Change,” a group of four short films on changes in the ocean environment, at Belfast Free Library on Saturday, April 22, at 6:30 p.m., free and open to the public. Marine biologist Susie Arnold, Ph.D, of the Island Institute will lead a short discussion after each of the 10-minute films, which deal respectively with warming waters in the Gulf of Maine, ocean acidification in Alaska, collapse and adaption in the Apalachicola (Florida) oyster fishery, and the future of aquaculture; pictured here is kelp aquaculture. The program is part of BBWC’s Earth Days Waldo County 2017 series of free events. For more information, visit BelfastBayWatershed.org and IslandInstitute.org.
