Dear LIAS members,
I hope that you and your families are all well during this very challenging time. This week would mark the beginning of a new season for LIAS. As you know, we have not been able to hold our meetings since this past February because of the pandemic. We initially received a letter from the dean at SUNY Stony Brook, informing us that until we are otherwise notified, we would be unable to use the meeting room in Endeavour Hall in the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, as we have done for quite some time.
The board has given some thought to having a meeting using Zoom or similar types of internet methods; however, after investigating our options, we do not feel that this would be an effective or enjoyable way to meet. Be sure to check back here occassionally and we'll let you know when the situation changes. Thank you. If you're looking for an outlet for your aquarium interests, consider joining our Facebook group. See below for information.
Sincerely, Margaret Peterson & the LIAS Board

Directions: West onto South Drive off of Nicolls Road (County Rd 97). At the light, make a right onto Marburger Drive and then make the next right (the street has no name but there are signs indicating that you are near the Marine Sciences buildings). Follow the road all the way to the back and you will see three buildings - Discovery, Challenger and Endeavour – the last one is Endeavour Hall. For more information, see this map on the SUNY Stony Brook website (a zoomed portion is shown below).
