Dear FHL Friends and Family,
We’ve had a busy and successful summer, and look forward to an exciting September here at FHL. This is our month of conferences and in addition to a full FHL campus, we are hosting a submersible! OceanGate Inc.‘s Cyclops 1 is coming to conduct research here in the Salish Sea for a week. This project is a partnership between UW FHL in the College of the Environment, The SeaDoc Society on Orcas Island, and the OceanGate Foundation in Everett. Each day, the submersible will be conducting research dives and on Thursday, September 13th from 6-7pm, we will have a public event on the FHL dock for those who would like to view the Cyclops and hear about the research being conducted.
It should be fun and interesting! We’re looking forward to a good turnout.
