Friends and Alumni of the Biological Station (FABS!), you are invited to return to the shores of Douglas Lake for a long weekend, August 22-25, 2013.
We plan to follow the format of our first FABS gathering in 2011: social and light educational opportunities, optional field trips, and lots of time for relaxing.
FABS fees 2013
The weekend fee for food, lodging and activites is (We know! A steal!):
Adult = $127.20
Child = $63.60 (age 17 and under)
Babies not eating meals" (0-2 years old) = $3.00 per day.
Below is a rough schedule of fully optional events. Guests who want to make their own plans (or make no plans) should do so. We will have more information on the field trips and evening activities as the dates get nearer.
