Captain License Information: Session II
Registration Unavailable

Captain License Information: Session II

Free

with John Coffin

Are you interested in obtaining a USCG Captain’s License? Do you want to learn the differences between an Operator Uninspected Passenger Vessel (OUPV) license and a Master 100GT license, and what experience the Coast Guard requires for each? These informational sessions will help answer these questions and other questions you may have about the two licenses. Also discussed will be the different methods for completing the course requirements. We are planning to offer both courses during the Fall of 2022 for those interested, representing the Captain School Key West/Captain School Miami. This information session is free, but please register in advance, so the instructor knows how many individuals will be attending and can send login instructions.

Mushroom Walk: Session II

$45

with David Spahr

Calendar Aug 21, 2022 at 1 pm

This course will include walking in the woods of Merrymeeting Bay to find edible mushrooms along with detailed descriptions of habitat and structure. David Spahr has collected edible mushrooms for 46 years and is a member of the Maine Mycological Association and the North American Mycological Association. Every walk bears a different bounty depending on the season, the weather and location. The majority of mushrooms found in nature are often not edible, and learning this element is even more important than knowing which ones you can eat. Please bring a notebook and pen, sensible clothing and footwear, water, snack and bug repellant. A basket or bags are optional. Children 8 to 15 are allowed to register only with a parent who is also registered. These hikes can be moderate in difficulty. No discounts.
