FSU Coastal & Marine Lab Open House

April 20 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


Be sure to mark your calendars for the FREE FSUCML Open House on Saturday, April 20th. We will have food trucks, fun and games, marine research displays, a silent auction, and a scavenger hunt!

FSUCML’s Open House highlights the importance of improving human awareness of the tight linkages between healthy ecosystems and healthy societies. Think of our local habitats — seagrass meadows, oyster reefs, saltmarshes, and other wetlands that protect their inhabitants, retain sediments and dampen storm surge, filter the air and water of pollutants, and fix carbon, thereby helping to curtail carbon dioxide buildup in the atmosphere while capturing nutrients for plant growth.

This Open House celebrates FSU’s scientists and their graduate students by providing an opportunity to showcase scientific knowledge of the land and sea. Research labs, public agencies, and community organizations will present their work, and great food will be available from local food trucks.

Throughout the day you can:
•Check out the Shark Jaw Display
•Discover everything you want to know about Deep Sea Corals
•Hunt for hints about protecting our oceans and coastline in the Scavenger Hunt
•Try picking up goodies with a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV)
•Bid on items in the silent auction
•Eat delicious food and treats from local vendors

Gather your friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues, and take a beautiful drive down to the coast for a FREE day of fun! From tiny tots to the most mature adults and those of us who never quite grew up — there will be something to educate, fascinate, and entertain everyone! Can’t wait to see you again!
