Kelly Drinnen serves as the Education and Outreach Specialist at the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary, where she has worked since 2004, seeking to make this reef, 100 miles offshore and under more than 60 feet of Gulf waters, more visible and appreciated. Here, she tells how scientists' coral corings at the Sanctuary can help teach and connect with the public. These plugs of ancient coral track the history of the reef and climate over the past 200+ years, in ways that can be directly incorporated in classroom lessons.
