June PNWMAS Meeting/ HMSC Tour! (With Pics of previous tour)

Recommended Posts

 Saturday, June 27th.

 

 It has all been arranged.  We will be given a behind-the-scenes tour of the Hatfield Marine Science Center, and the Aquarium Science Building!  http://hmsc.oregonstate.edu/visitor-center

 

This event is open to everyone! All PNWMAS Members and Forum Members, and their families!

 

We will all meet at the Hatfield Marine Science Center

2030 SE Marine Science Dr Newport, OR 97365  at 11:00 AM.
 
The HMSC Visitor opens at 10:00 AM, if people want to show up early.
 

The drive from the Portland/Vancouver area to HMSC in Newport is about 2 1/2 hours. Plan leaving home early enough so we can all be on time!

(I'm adding another hour to my drive, and leaving my home Sherwood at 7:30 AM... there may be many traffic with other people headed to the Coast for the day!!)

YES!!! Its like that folks, any one who is interested in this should by all means attend. Behind the scenes tours are always educational gems for those who want to see how things tick. You know it will be fun, and who doesn't like a trip to the coast.

Thanks for getting this scheduled! This is an awesome place! And Newport in general is always fun to visit! I like that the time is early enough so there is plenty of time to get home. I will have to check my schedule but sounds fun!

Our visit to Hatfield Marine Science Center in 2009, and a few pictures of locally caught fish & inverts, although some pics were taken at the Oregon Coast Aquarium located next to HMSC.

I had a great time at the meeting last year. Hopefully the turn out is better then the two members last year. Hopefully the Tour will include the visit to the community college as that was a high light.

Thanks for the pictures John! I feel like you and Bert are doing a good job going back to the roots of what this club is all about. I do hope more people can come. I know it's a long drive and road trips are fun! I am still trying to see if I can go and would try to arrange a carpool!

Please do come, if you can! It will be my pleasure to host another meeting and give you folks a back-of-the-house tour at HMSC and a tour of the AQSB as well. Dr. Tim will be in attendance and is a very personable and approachable fellow. Looking very much forward to it. See you soon!

In the past after the tours, we have always had a Potluck across the bridge at Yaquina Bay State Park and Lighthouse, just a ways past the first parking lot. We usually started around 3PM, but we can possibly meet earlier, depending on what time the tours are over. We want to do this every year!

We had a big Clam & Oyster feed, and when most people brought main dishes, deserts, and drinks, there was more than enough or everyone. We  need main dishes, side dishes like salads and desserts. There are BBQ grills there. I have a camp stove. Does anyone have a big kettle, like 5 gallons or so, to throw in some clams and oysters?

 

Here is a map with directions from the HMSC/ Oregon Coast Aquarium area. https://maps.yahoo.com/directions/?lat=44.61949369265395&lon=-124.05938744544983&bb=44.62311335%2C-124.06887174%2C44.61588908%2C-124.04990315&o=2820%20SE%20Ferry%20Slip%20Road%2C%20Newport%2C%20OR%2097365&d=Yaquina%20Bay%20State%20Park%2C%20Newport%2C%20OR

 

 

The picnic tables and BBQ area is located on Yaquina Beach State Park Rd. that loops by the Lighthouse.

I hope that everyone is ready for the behind-the-scenes tour of the Hatfield Marine Science Center, and the Aquarium Science Building!

 

Our Potluck/BBQ will follow immediately afterwards at Yaquina State Beach Recreation Area, located right across the bridge north of HMSC! https://www.google.com/maps/place/44%C2%B037%2735.1%22N+124%C2%B003%2741.8%22W/@44.6275525,-124.0690424,14z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x0

 

The club will provide burgers, hot dogs. and drinks! We will also have plates and utensils.

Bring your favorite main dish, side dish, salad or dessert to share! See you all there!
