Become a Friend of the Lab

These are exciting times at the FSU Coastal and Marine Laboratory. The research conducted by faculty, grad students, and undergraduates continues to expand in novel areas on critically important topics, from the shoreline to the deep sea. What does this mean to you? It means that there are even more ways that you can contribute to the laboratory’s success. Private support of any kind provides us with tremendous flexibility to respond rapidly to new opportunities and to plan for long-term development. So please consider joining a group of dedicated people who support our mission.
