The Flathead Lake Biological Station's annual Open House is held each year in late summer.

The Open House is an annual event. The Open House allows FLBS scientists to showcase their everyday activities, as well as to explain how this ongoing ecology research benefits visitors, local and regional residents, and the science of water quality as a whole.

Activities include tours of Biological Station facilities, boat trips on our 30' research vessel, the Jessie B, and exhibits of current and past Station limnology and ecology research. You can browse through our museum of Station history which stretches back to the late 1800s, take a tour of the local flora and fauna (up to 85 different bird species throughout the year!), take a beach hike out to Yellow Bay point, or just enjoy a sunny day with the family on the shore of Flathead Lake .
