Inspiring Curiosity in a New Generation

Herring Gut Learning Center is a non-profit marine education center overlooking a working harbor in the small fishing village of Port Clyde, Maine.

We use the abundant coastal resources surrounding our campus to present aquaculture and marine science programs that:

Engage public school students in grades 6-12 who are academically at risk, using a hands-on, entrepreneurial, business-based model to keep them in school

Train teachers in engaging, hands-on instruction that increases student interest and comprehension in science, math, history and the arts

Connect academic concepts with local ecosystems and fisheries in customized, hands-on classes for groups of public school students

Offer a First Work Experience during the summer months for local teens ages 13-15

Teach conservation and sustainable practices to a new generation of ocean stewards through community outreach programs

Engage families around marine science topics through our summer Saltwater Series
