It is with regret that the Department of Biology
at Hofstra University will no longer oversee the operation of the Hofstra University
Marine Laboratory (HUML) effective September 1, 2006.
While the Department of Biology at Hofstra University
will no longer operate HUML, the owners of the lab and Columbus Beach Cottages
(Sandi Ross and Sandy Walters) will continue to maintain the facility and would
like to host educational groups as they have done in the past. If you are interested
in bringing your group back to CBC you can contact them directly (see information
below) and make arrangements for your trip.
In addition, the owners are interested in partnering
with a new institution that would take over the educational endeavors that Hofstra
used to provide. The lab could be a valuable asset that would enhance the research
and education of any institution. I am happy to provide assistance and information
if anyone would like to discuss how the lab was operated in the past. I hope
to see it grow in future years.
