This is a free event and open to the public. It has been five years since the last open house, so be sure to take advantage of this opportunity to learn about the teaching and research programs at the Station. Faculty and students from ten diverse labs will be available to talk with you about their research and have put together displays and demonstrations to show you what they do. There will be opportunities to learn about marine mammals, aquatic birds, fish, invertebrates, and algae. There will be games for kids, firing of a water cannon, a parasite petting zoo, a knitted kelp forest, squid dissections, short talks by faculty and students, and the always popular tuna feeding. The staff looks forward to seeing you and sharing both the rich history of this century-old facility and the current cutting edge research that takes place at Hopkins. NOTE: The limited on-site parking will be restricted to handicapped visitors, so please plan to park outside and walk onto the campus.
