Lecture on Alaska's coastal zones and seaweeds to be held Saturday at state museum

Posted: December 6, 2012 - 1:04am

Mandy Lindeberg, a federal fisheries research biologist with NOAA’s Auke Bay Laboratory in Juneau, will share her fascination with Alaska’s coastal ecology and seaweeds during a presentation Saturday, Dec, 8, at 2 p.m. at the Alaska State Museum.

The lecture is being held in conjunction with the exhibit, “Costal Impressions: A Photographic Journey along Alaska’s Gulf Coast,” created by the Cook Inlet Regional Citizens Advisory Council in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, on display at the museum through Jan. 12. Lindeberg will explain how the exhibit evolved as an unexpected product of the Alaska ShoreZone coastal habitat mapping project.

Lindeberg and Sandra Lindstrom co-authored the book “Field Guide to Seaweeds of Alaska,” published in 2010 by the NOAA-sponsored Alaska Sea Grant Program at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. This field guide is filled with photos of more than 100 species of seaweeds and is also available for sale in the museum’s gift store.

Winter hours at the museum are 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
