Marine Lab Just Gets Better With Age
by Karl Bates -- May 5th, 2010
Alumni, faculty and students gather on Pivers Island this week to celebrate the 70th birthday of the Duke Marine Lab.
The Duke Marine Lab’s portion of Pivers Island, between Beaufort and Morehead City, was purchased by Duke in 1938 precisely because it was surrounded by tidal marshes, sandbars, undeveloped islands, and the Beaufort Channel, gateway to 2/3rds of the planet.
