What’s up with Cape Cod’s Water? Join the experts for a beer & learn more!
Cape Cod Beer has teamed up with Barnstable Clean Water Coalition to create Clean Water Wednesday, an educational series that will be held at Cape Cod Beer. Join the experts as we deep dive into topics that are affecting not only our water on Cape Cod but globally as well! #CleanWaterMatters
This month’s topic: Meet Your Neighbors – Whales & Dolphins of Cape Cod
Join us at the brewery on July 20th to hear from Regina Asmutis-Silvia, the Executive Director of Whale and Dolphin Conservation-North America (WDC). Come learn about the over 12 species of whales and dolphins who come to Cape Cod to find their food in our nutrient-rich waters! During this talk, we will discuss the species who are commonly seen here, including how they have their own language, culture, and personalities! These whales also play an important role in our ecosystem – whales are the ocean’s gardeners who bring nutrients to the plants of the ocean when they poop at the surface. This is politely referred to as the ‘whale pump’ and plays a key role in our environment, our economy, and combating climate change.
This event is FREE to attend. Please RSVP through Eventbrite!
