OUR STAFF AND INSTRUCTORS

OceansWide's programs give Maine students a unique, hands-on experience with guidance from educators, research scientists, archeologists, and historians. With an opportunity to get a first hand look into the past, present, and future of the Gulf of Maine, we help them become aware of the treasures they stand to inherit and the importance of protecting them.
