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 March Tide Bite examines the strong connection between science and art which is richly explored at Friday Harbor Laboratories. Fernanda Oyarzún describes deeply exploring this connection via the FHL Embryology Course, which has encouraged students to do so since Professor Arthur Whiteley began teaching it in 1950.FHL Tide Bites
Happy February 1 to all!
We are still enjoying the fact that last Thursday, January 25, FHL Associate Director for Academics and the Environment, Professor Megan Dethier was honored with the 2018 Conservation Research Award from the Seattle Aquarium at the Chairman’s Dinner.
Please join us on San Juan Island to explore UW’s internationally acclaimed marine labs.
Once a year we open our doors and encourage folks to come see what we’re doing! As you find your way across our beautiful FHL campus, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at our facilities and learn about the research being done here.Read more »
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.
It’s October 1st and our FHL Autumn Marine Biology Quarter and Pelagic Ecosystem Function Apprenticeship are off to fine starts! We’re happy to also be hosting the Three Seas undergraduate students at FHL for diving, molecular work, research, and learning about the unique environment here on San Juan Island.
