Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of three websites and four blogs maintained by the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) as they existed on January 2, 2014.

The primary SERC website includes information about SERC's mission, facilities, research, and school and public programs. It also includes press releases.

The "Shorelines: Life and Science at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center" blog details the discoveries of SERC's environmental scientists, the weird creatures they have encountered, and the strange but true science of the coasts. The first post to the blog was in October 2009.

The "SERC Home School" blog is for students enrolled in SERC's home school classes and their parents. It includes materials for classes as well as updates and other information. The first post was in March 2011.

The "Ecosystems on the Edge" website provides information about ecosystems that are literally and figuratively on the edge as well as information on how to protect them. Due to technical issues, video content was not captured as part of this accession.

The "Estuary Chesapeake" blog is an exchange between teachers, parents, SERC staff, and students related to field trips for the Estuary Chesapeake program. The program allows students to study estuarine ecology on the Rhode River and connect environmental issues of the watershed to human impacts. Although on a blog platform, it is organized more like a traditional website than a blog.

The "SERC Bio Block Course" blog is a resource hub for a marine biology course offered by SERC. This accession does not include password-protected content, the majority of the content on the blog.

The "Global Tree Banding Project" website documents the Smithsonian Institution's Global Tree Banding Project which originated within SERC but is now part of a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution, TakingITGlobal, and Microsoft Partners in Learning. The project allows students around the globe to monitor the rate at which their local trees grow and learn how that rate corresponds to Smithsonian Institution research as well as compare their work to other students world-wide. The website includes information about the project and provides instructions and resources. This accession does not include password-protected content.

Materials are in electronic format.

Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of two blogs maintained by the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC), both crawled on June 1, 2012.

The "SERC Home School" blog is for students enrolled in SERC's home school classes and their parents. It includes updated materials for classes as well as updates and other information about the classes. The first post was in March 2011.

The "Estuary Chesapeake" blog is an exchange between teachers, parents, SERC staff, and students related to field trips for the Estuary Chesapeake program. The program allows fourth through sixth grade students to study estuarine ecology on the Rhode River and connect environmental issues of the watershed to human impacts. Although technically a blog, it is organized more like a traditional website than a blog.
