05/08/2019: "FH Laboratories Open House Saturday"


On Saturday, May 11, 2019, the University of Washington’s Friday Harbor Laboratories (FHL) will hold its annual Open House. The Open House is a splendid opportunity for the community to meet scientists and students at the Labs. All are invited to check out the research and teaching facilities. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Labs will be open for self-guided tours. Scientists and students will showcase their marine science research, answer questions and provide demonstrations. There will be posters, marine plants and animals, microscopes, plankton sampling and observations, and activities for visitors of all ages. Families are particularly encouraged to attend.

The public is invited to learn more about marine zoology, botany, fisheries, oceanography, and the equipment used by scientists in these fields. The R/V Centennial, FHL’s 58’ research vessel, will be open for visitation -- check out its remotely operated vehicle (ROV), oceanographic tools, and sonar systems.

There will also be underwater SCUBA demonstrations from the FHL dock, and scientific lectures by resident researchers.

Sturdy shoes are recommended because the tour route includes rough dock planks, gravel paths and trails.

In keeping with FHL Open House tradition - and visitor favorite - there will be free popcorn. Hot dogs and other snacks will also be available for purchase on the Dining Hall deck.
