From the Tide Pool to the Stars by Lisa Tossey

I was thrilled to be invited to the 2018 AGU Ocean Sciences meeting in Portland, Ore., to take part in a new event - a pop-up art show to help raise awareness of STEAM (science-technology-engineering-art-math) initiatives and art-science collaborations on the high seas. 

The show, titled "From the Tide Pool to the Stars," featured artwork and photography created during research cruises, as well as video pieces, including the highlights video I pulled together from our deep-sea cruise last spring. 

I also had several photos from that cruise featured. View all the work here on the companion Ocean | Science | Art website

It's a time when piers are becoming encased in ice, wildlife are moving further afield for food, and snow is blowing and blending with the sand. 

Only 27 days to go until Spring... 

Birds of Bombay Hook by Lisa Tossey

Just a few of the birds spotted at Bombay Hook this week

Bombay Hook Wildlife Refuge is always a wonderful place to go looking for birds - especially during the shoulder season when so many are taking flight to move to different climes. A wide variety of feathered friends were out and about during quick trip to the refuge this week, from snowy egrets to lesser yellowlegs to terns to a northern harrier, as well as the first snow geese of the season, signaling that winter isn't too far away...
