10 Years on the Waterfront Open House

10:00 am to 4:00 pm

It's hard to believe it's been 10 years since we found our home on Commercial Street, but we've come a long way since 2005 and we'd like to celebrate. Whether you're a longtime partner or friend, a parent of a child who came through LabVenture!, or just an interested community member who is curious about what goes on inside that big gray building, we hope you'll join us to celebrate and learn more.

Bring the whole family on Saturday, May 2 to talk to scientists, learn about seafood and fishing gear, experience our education programs first hand, and help us blow out the candles after an amazing 10 years.

Scheduled speakers will include:

  • 11:00 | Gulf of Maine Seafood in a Global Marketplace and Strategies for Sustainability with George Parmenter, Manager of Sustainability, Delhaize America, and Jen Levin, Sustainable Seafood Program Manager, GMRI
  • 12:45 | Candles, Cake, & Reflections with Don Perkins, President and CEO, GMRI
  • 2:00 | Innovative Education at GMRI with Leigh Peake, Chief Education Officer, GMRI
  • 3:00 | Mechanisms of the Fishing Industry with Jonathan Labaree, Chief Community Officer, and Alexa Dayton, Community Training and Outreach Program Manager, GMRI

Please check back, as details are continually updated and released!
