December 2017 Tide Bites

Dear FHL friends and supporters,
Happy Holidays!  I hope that you enjoyed the long Thanksgiving weekend.  We have so much to be thankful here at  Friday Harbor Laboratories!  It has been a difficult year in so many ways in our country, but here at FHL, the UW College of the Environment and the University of Washington, we continue to strive for excellence, diversity, equity and inclusion.
