LEE YEOMANS

LEE YEOMANS, after observing the enjoyment her children and their friends had on board their vessel the Erica Lee, came up with the idea for a marine program for kids.  Bob and Erica agreed, and Coastal Discoveries was born in 1988.  Lee completed a course in environmental education for children at the Seacoast Science Center at Odiorne Point in Rye, New Hampshire, and has participated in many Project WILD workshops through the Audubon Society.
