FWRI Celebrates 25 Years of MarineQuest this October

On Saturday, October 19th, FWRI celebrates the 25th anniversary of MarineQuest, our annual open house. This award-winning event is an opportunity for us to share with the public the depth of FWRI research. For newer employees who haven’t experienced MarineQuest, the main building and labs are open to the public where researchers guide them through each lab, engaging all ages with trivia and exercises designed to communicate science.

MarineQuest open house on October 19th runs from 10am – 4pm. School-Daze, which are two days before the open house, October 17th and 18th, is specifically for schools who sign-up ahead of time. School Daze is designed to give area schools the chance to tour FWRI before the Saturday open house, which is highly attended. Learn more here.
