If you attended the last Green Drinks with Superpod you might remember the whales, the rainbows, the sunset, the lightening, and the music by Savio Farrel as a backdrop to all this magic. It was a pretty surreal night to say the least.
To continue on the marine-theme, we will be holding August Green Drinks (...drumroll....) aboard the Friday Harbor Labs' Premier research vessel the R/V Centennial! This is going to be a great event and a fun opportunity to learn about this vessel as well as the research happening at FHL. The boat will remain pier side so that you are able to come at go at your leisure during the event.
To get there take University Road off Tucker Rd. Go through the forested bit (drive slowly - deer!) to the Labs parking area on your right. Please park there and then make your way down to the water where you will find the dock leading to the boat. Signs will help lead the way. *There will be divers in the water, so please do not come by dinghy* If this is your only option, let me know in advance and I'll pass you over to the Labs folks to describe a safe way to avoid the divers.
FHL and the captain of this vessel are generously donating the use of the boat and their time to help put on Green Drinks. This is NOT a BYOB event, and refreshments will be available onboard. (These are purchased separately by yours truly, so please consider donating at the event to cover the cost of your drinks.)
*The world-famous Green Drinks is an international, unstructured, self-organizing network of environmental folks or those interested in getting involved. Friday Harbor's Green Drinks was established in spring 2015 and has been growing! We have a great mix of non-profit organizations, local government, academia, local business, kayak community, Friday Harbor Labs, general community and even a few passerby! Always the Third Thursday of the month (Thirsty Third Thursday!). Join us at this month's spot for a drink and some good chat. All are welcome!*
