Sound Reflections:
APNEP's 30th Anniversary 2017

Telling the Albemarle-Pamlico National Estuary Partnership Story

The United States Congress designated the Albemarle-Pamlico estuarine system an "estuary of national significance" in 1987. That same year, the Albemarle-Pamlico Estuarine Study (APES) was among the first of 28 National Estuary Programs established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) through amendments to the Clean Water Act. To help commemorate our 30th Anniversary, we plan to highlight the history of APNEP by featuring our partners-past and present-throughout 2017.

A fresh take on the region's salty affairs

Proud Shaddys and Shamommas!
A Shad in the Classroom Tale

By Danielle Pender, Shad in the Classroom Program Specialist, North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, December 12, 2016

The enthusiasm of the students and the teachers who participate in the Shad in the Classroom Program is contagious! The Shad in the Classroom program begins for North Carolina schools with a teacher workshop in February, shad tank set up and water quality monitoring in late March or early April, learning about the life history and management of American shad, and participating in some special educational offerings related to the program. But for the Shad in the Classroom students, the true enthusiasm begins with the delivery of their shad eggs (babies)!

The excitement of Shad in the Classroom 2016 started with the delivery of American shad eggs to 27 schools in April over three Mondays. This is a time of great anticipation and delight for the students, and one classroom dubbed themselves the “shaddys and shamommas” of their shad eggs. The term “shaddy” came from one of the extra educational activities that we offer - a genetic exercise entitled “Who’s Your Shaddy” that was developed by the North Carolina State Museum of Natural Sciences staff. These students “swam” away with the idea and expanded it to include both the boy (shaddy) and girl (shamomma) students as the parents of the shad as they care for them for the week.
