The Lighthouse Program

Search Groton Connecticut

A marine science/environmental organization which provides boats, oceanographic equipment, a lab, materials and staff to people who want first-hand, on-the-water experience through cruises aboard a 55-ft research vessel. On the "EnviroLab" cruises, instructors teach how to identify fish, measure lobsters and test seawater. Core samples from the ocean bottom are also taken and examined.

The Lighthouse Program cruises include a boat tour of New London Harbor, during which instructors discuss its history.
