Dear FHL Friends and Family,
Spring has arrived and with it the students have returned for a new year of research and teaching. On the FHL campus we currently have students from UW, the Three Seas program from Northeastern University and CORALS from Cornell University, making it an exciting mix. This year we welcome Dr. Joshua Reid, who is teaching a history course “The Indigenous History and Environment of the Salish Sea.”
This month’s Tide Bite explores the interplay between research and teaching, which are so entwined in FHL courses. Read about the research done in the 2014 Marine Botany course, and the diversity of seaweeds in the San Juan Islands!
