In other exciting news our department has worked on a settling plate rack for BioDiscovery for a little while now and launched it today, June 28th! BioDiscovery is a program created through collaboration between Charleston County Parks and Recreation along with SC Sea Grant Consortium and Patriots Point is proud to be an official hub. These plates will collect organisms that land and subsequently grow attached to substrate, and they will ultimately attract more animals. Things we expect to see are barnacles, anemones and sea squirts. This “biorack” attached to our education dock will be getting checked on regularly. Once organisms start growing, we will be viewing them under a dissecting microscope. It will be interesting to see what is there.
