New England is a kelpy wonderland. Along our shores, we have rolling meadows of kelp full of crabs, lobsters and more. But it's not just us. Kelps beds, meadows, and forests are found in one quarter of the world's coastal areas. They provide food for humans and fish alike, alter shorelines, and shape the temperate reefs around them. But these big beautiful cold water algae have started to respond to changes in water temperatures and wave action. Come learn more about what kelps means for you and what changes may be in store for the future.
