Coast Day Events

There are no events to display.

Thank you for a terrific Coast Day 2017 and join us again on October 7, 2018!

Coast Day showcases how University of Delaware scientists, staff, and students are improving our understanding of ocean environments and serve coastal communities. Coast Day attendees can interact with researchers, tour ships, try hands-on activities, and attend presentations on a range of topics.

Family-friendly activities include an event-wide treasure hunt for answers to questions about the environment and Coast Day exhibits. Children can meet sea-dwelling animals such as horseshoe crabs and dogfish sharks at the critter touch tanks. Everyone can enjoy live music, vendor displays, and seafood favorites showcased by local chefs at the Crab Cake Cook-Off and the Seafood Chowder Challenge.

Our theme for 2017 was "Discoveries...on land, in the air and at sea." Be sure to check out the 2017 Coast Day Contest Winners and the Story Map put together by Coast Day attendees!

Coast Day is sponsored by the University of Delaware’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment and the Delaware Sea Grant College Program.
