You're invited to the grand opening of the Capt. Thomas M. Kelly Biological Station today. This $1.5 million renovation of the Inland Seas Education Association’s Suttons Bay campus will be unveiled after a presentation by the executive director and a ribbon cutting ceremony. Attendees are encouraged to walk around the grounds and through the new dormitory space in the facility. All ages are welcome as there will be s’mores at the outdoor fire pit, hands-on science in the lab and music by Song of the Lakes under the tent.
In celebration of ISEA’s 30-year history, each dorm room will contain a theme including:
ISEA’s Reach: Maps and data of ISEA’s 125,000+ participants
People Who Make It Happen: 30 years of board members, volunteers, staff, and donors
Where the Impact Occurs: ISEA’s vessels and facilities over the past 30 years
Success Stories: Past students, teachers, and intern stories of how ISEA inspired them
The Science: Graphs and information about the science data collected in our 30 years
Future Vision: Where do you see ISEA in the next 30+ years?
