Located on 95-acre (38.44 hectare) Appledore Island, Isles of Shoals in the Gulf of Maine, this near-pristine environment allows students to study many aspects of inter tidal and sub-tidal ecology. The laboratory facilities on the island are complemented by the ocean-going capabilities of the SML-owned research vessels, R/V John M. Kingsbury and the R/V John B. Heiser. SML's academic program includes over twenty credit courses for undergraduates, graduates and professionals, several adult and family education programs open to the general public, tours of Celia Thaxter's historic garden and programs for high school juniors and seniors. The academic faculty hail from academic institutions throughout the US and Canada as well as professional fields, where relevant.
