Coastal Certificate classes delayed until ‘coast is clear’

This year’s Coastal Certificate Program, which met for its first two of four classes on March 9 and 11 at Connecticut College in New London, has been suspended until the COVID-19 virus threat abates.

“As you might expect, the Coastal Certificate has been put on hold until, well, the coast is clear,” said Judy Preston, who leads the annual class and is Long Island Sound Outreach Coordinator for Connecticut Sea Grant. “We got through the first two evenings with flying colors. The group is enthusiastic and asked many good questions.”

The next two classes, scheduled for March 23 and 25, will resume at a future date. About three dozen participants are enrolled in the program, which focuses on sustainable gardening practices that benefit Long Island Sound and its watershed. This year’s program is titled, “Pathways from Source to Sea — How Gardens Can Make the Connection.”

The college, currently on spring break, will offer all its classes online when the semester resumes on March 25.
