For many islanders, it is a long-standing tradition to come to UW 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 again, access to the FHL grounds will be restricted as the campus continues to be closed to the public under University of Washington regulations.
On the 4th, 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 time in the near future when FHL students, scientists, and staff will again welcome the islands’ community for events such as Open House, Fourth of July, and Jazz at the Labs.
