Buffalo, NY, November 8, 2018 - WBFO’s Angelica Morrison recently spoke with University at Buffalo Professor Helen Domske, the Senior Costal Education Coordinator for New York Sea Grant. In June, Domske received the Vallentyne Award, the highest outreach honor from the International Association for Great Lakes Research (IAGLR), for her work in Great Lakes education and outreach.

Over the last 40 years, Domske has worked with teachers and students on range of topics, including invasive species and plastic pollution.

"Helen's many outreach activities, enthusiasm for the Great Lakes, and innovative ideas for outreach and education, including a ‘teach the teachers’ approach to multiply the students who can be reached, is truly inspiring," said Joseph Atkinson, chair of the Department of Civil, Structural, and Environmental Engineering at the University of Buffalo.

New York Sea Grant (NYSG), a cooperative program of Cornell University and the State University of New York (SUNY), is one of 33 university-based programs under the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Sea Grant College Program.

Since 1971, NYSG has represented a statewide network of integrated research, education and extension services promoting coastal community economic vitality, environmental sustainability and citizen awareness and understanding about the State’s marine and Great Lakes resources.

Through NYSG’s efforts, the combined talents of university scientists and extension specialists help develop and transfer science-based information to many coastal user groups—businesses and industries, federal, state and local government decision-makers and agency managers, educators, the media and the interested public.

The program maintains Great Lakes offices at Cornell University, SUNY Buffalo, SUNY Oswego and the Wayne County Cooperative Extension office in Newark. In the State's marine waters, NYSG has offices at Stony Brook University in Long Island, Brooklyn College and Cornell Cooperative Extension in NYC and Kingston in the Hudson Valley.

NYSG offers a free e-list sign up via www.nyseagrant.org/nycoastlines for its flagship publication, NY Coastlines/Currents, which is published quarterly. Our program also produces an occasional e-newsletter,"NOAA Sea Grant's Social Media Review," via its blog, www.nyseagrant.org/blog.
