Sanibel Sea School is growing, and we are happy to welcome two new marine science educators to our team. Char Cadow hails from Norwich, VT and loves avocados. Emmett Horvath is our first former Sanibel Sea School student to join us as a full time, year-round employee! Learn more about Char and Emmett below...


Char Cadow, Marine Science Educator

Where are you from?
I’m from the wee little town of Norwich, VT, known for King Arthur Flour, Dan and Whits General Store, and the Saturday Farmer’s Market.

Where did you go to school and what did you study? 
I studied Environmental Science at Colorado College. CC is a small liberal arts school situated at the base of Pikes Peak, Colorado.

Is there something about working at Sanibel Sea School that you are looking most forward to?
There is so much to learn about marine ecosystems, and I am super jazzed to share the ongoing discovery process with kids, adults, and the groovy team at Sx3. 

What do you like to do during your time off? 
I love to run, bike, longboard, explore, hike, paddleboard, read, practice yoga, journal, watercolor, play the guitar, and cook! Sometimes I sleep, too.

Favorite sea creature: 
Dwarf seahorse because: 1) They have prehensile tails; 2) They’re defying gender norms; 3) They look like horses; 4) We can find them in the seagrass just down the road! 

What's the best music for a weekend at the beach? 
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

If you could visit any marine ecosystem on the planet, where would you go? 
I would go to Alaska, but there’s almost 34,000 miles of shoreline in Alaska, so I’d logically have to visit the fjords, mudflats, rocky intertidal, and the lagoons. 

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself? 
My favorite food (also my spirit fruit) is avocado with olive oil, salt, pepper, and lemon.


Emmett Horvath, Marine Science Educator

Where are you from?
Hanover, New Hampshire... Live Free or Die!

Where did you go to school and what did you study? 
I attended Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, where I majored in marine biology, minored in studio art, and ran cross country.

Is there something about working at Sanibel Sea School that you are looking most forward to?I'm looking forward to being part of a tribe where every day is an adventure in the great outdoors!

What do you like to do during your time off? 
I like to run, longboard, canoe, hike, adventure, and explore!

Favorite sea creature: 
Definitely the osprey, my spirit animal, though sharks, specifically lemon and whale sharks, are close runners-up!

What's the best music for a weekend at the beach? 
Bluegrass (look up Trampled By Turtles), and jazz (check out the Dirty Dozen Brass Band).

If you could visit any marine ecosystem on the planet, where would you go? 
I haven't spent very much time on the Pacific side of the continent, so the Pacific Northwest is definitely high up on my list!

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself? 
Part of my heritage is Swedish and my ancestors were Vikings; the sea is in my blood. 

Thank you, Char and Emmett!
