Rockweed, Ascophyllum nodosum, covers much of the rocky intertidal in Maine; it is ecologically and economically important. This talk will focus on the natural history of rockweed and some of the current rockweed research happening in Harpswell and throughout the state.

Hannah Webber is the Director of Marine Ecology at Schoodic Institute, she mainly focuses on intertidal ecology, intertidal health and stakeholder engagement. Her research focuses on rockweed ecology, and she works on understanding the connection of the intertidal to upland ecology and to ocean ecology, and how to engage people in the process of science.
