Lunch and Learn with marine educator Carol Steingart

Join us on Friday, March 7th from 12-1 pm for our monthly Lunch & Learn! Carol Steingart, marine educator and owner of Coast Encounters will teach us about Irish Moss, a seaweed that is found on the shores of Ireland and Maine. The cell walls of Irish Moss contain a component called Carrageenan, that when extracted at a factory in Rockland, Maine is added to foods such as toothpaste, dog food, and ice cream to make them thick and creamy.
Carol will lead an interactive program with a lecture, games and a fun contest! On top of that she will bring some of the products that contain Carrageenan, including ice cream, caramel , hot fudge and whipped cream. We'll have a special dessert using these products. Feel free to bring a lunch if you want. We will provide the drinks and dessert!
