For many islanders, it is a long-standing tradition to come to the University of Washington Friday Harbor Labs on the Fourth of July to sit on the breakwater or bluffs to watch the fireworks in the harbor – it’s one of the best viewing sites!
So we are saddened to announce that this year, access to the FHL grounds will be restricted as the campus continues to be closed to the public for the health and safety of the island community and FHL staff and researchers. On July 4, to ensure that no large gatherings take place on campus, we will be closing University Road where it crosses onto FHL property and will have a staff member stationed there in the evening.
We look forward to a better 2021 season when FHL students, scientists, and staff will again welcome the island community for open house, Fourth of July, and other social events
