Buckeye Island Hop

Spend a weekend on Lake Erie at the Buckeye Island Hop, October 19-21, 2018. This annual event gives alumni and friends of Ohio State a chance to check out Gibraltar and South Bass islands, take part in an outdoor volunteer project, and meet new people.

 

FOSL award Stone Lab Scholarships to State Science Day Competitors

The Friends of Stone Laboratory (FOSL) awarded Stone Laboratory scholarships to 16 high school students from across the state at the 2018 State Science Day, held May 12, 2018 at The Ohio State University. Since 1996, the nonprofit group has awarded scholarships to more than 200 top State Science Day participants to allow them to experience hands-on science at Stone Lab.

Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Student Presentations

Donations to Stone Lab go a long way in supporting students, from funding lab renovations to hiring visiting professors. But one of the most direct ways donors support the next generation of Lake Erie scientists is through scholarships like the REU program. For the first time this year, FOSL sponsored a specific REU, awarded to Raphaella Mascia, an environmental studies major at College of the Holy Cross.

FOSL Keeps Charter Captain Sampling Program Running

Lake Erie charter boat captains have been helping Stone Lab monitor water quality since 2013, by collecting water samples during their regular fishing cruises and educating their clients about Lake Erie water quality. When a gap in funding occurred this year, FOSL stepped in to help keep the program running.
