Supporting Shoals: Welcome!

Your support makes a difference!

Make a gift* to protect this unique marine field station and its hands-on educational programs or become a volunteer and help make the Shoals experience possible for others.

Your gifts provide much needed financial assistance to SML students, allow expansion of academic programs, attract top faculty members, and help SML maintain a sustainable community on Appledore Island.

Volunteers have been an integral part of life on Appledore since the beginning of SML. Pitch in for a day or weekend on chores from clearing trails and painting porches to setting up dorm rooms and tuning engines. Celia Thaxter's garden needs many hands, too.

A lovely video filmed at the Shoals by one of our undergraduate research internship mentors, David O. Brown--enjoy!
