CFL Students Headed To Sapelo Island for Zoology 750

Yesterday afternoon, eight UW graduate students and two of the Center for Limnology fleet vehicles left on an 18-hour drive to Georgia. Their destination? Sapelo Island, a barrier island just off the Georgia’s coast.

No, that's not Tom Selleck and no, limnology isn't headed to Hollywood. Luke Loken awaits his fellow students for the 18 hour drive to the Georgia coast.

The crew was headed down as part of the Zoology 750 class project. The course is titled “Problems in Oceanography” and, each fall its students design an experiment and then head to Sapelo to carry it out.
The life of a grad student involves things like non-stop drives to the coast.

We’ll feature some of those experiments and updates from both the road and the water as the Sapelo crew does fieldwork in a beautiful ecosystem.
You can follow their exploits on Twitter at #Sapleo13, check out the Center for Limnology Facebook page for updates and stay tuned to the blog as we cover the trip. Coming soon: pics of the Atlantic. For now, pics of the not-yet-road-weary crew!

And, an important point to note for the Georgia Highway Patrol: That’s NOT Tom Selleck at the wheel. Just our very own Luke Loken!
