Environmental lecture series returns to Blue Hill

To celebrate World Oceans Day, the Shaw Institute (previously Marine & Environmental Research Institute) opens this year’s environmental lecture series on Wednesday, June 6, with a world premiere screening of Blue: The Day The Ocean Changed. This award-winning feature documentary invokes a stunningly beautiful yet besieged ocean world teetering on the edge of a colossal man-made crisis, according to a news release.

The 2018 lectures are all on the theme “Climate Change, Exposure and Human Health,” featuring an eclectic mix of world-class scientists from across the U.S., a rising young junior scientist and provocative new contributors.

All lectures are free and open to the public. Space is limited, so arrive on time to guarantee a seat. Lectures begin promptly at 6 p.m., preceded by a reception at 5:30 p.m. They are held on certain Wednesdays at the Shaw Institute at the Blue Hill Research Center, 55 Main Street in Blue Hill.
