This month’s Tide Bite highlights the blending of art and science – two fields that might seem at odds, but not at FHL! We encourage these cross-disciplinary interactions, including Adam Summers’ work mentioned below and in previous events that combined poets, writers and marine scientists. Nature makes beautiful patterns and organisms; highlighting and celebrating these with art brings pleasure to many people.
On a more macroscopic scale, FHL is undergoing a big boat transition. We are downsizing our research vessel from the beloved Centennial to the smaller but similarly-equipped Kittiwake, which we will be able to operate at a lower cost to our classes and researchers. Change is hard, but we are convinced this is the right thing to do. We are raising funds for this purchase; if you can help, please contact Rachel Anderson at 206-616-0760 or email@example.com, or give online. Thanks very much!
