05/08/2018: "FH Labs OPEN HOUSE Saturday"


On Saturday, May 12, 2018, 1:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the University of Washington’s Friday Harbor Laboratories will hold its annual Open House. This event offers a splendid opportunity to meet scientists and students at the Labs and check out the research and teaching facilities.

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. People can step aboard and tour FHL’s 58’ research vessel, the R/V Centennial, and 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, there will be free popcorn. Hot dogs and other snacks will also be available for purchase on the Dining Hall deck.

FHL’s website fhl.uw.edu/about/news-and-events/ provides a detailed overview of FHL’s research, service and educational activities.
