The fly room is usually pretty busy in the morning.
Throughout the day, you can often find people chatting about their science.
Each year we "retreat" to talk science, enjoy nature and eat good food. We always invite a special guest from out of town.
Retreat 2016 with Lindey McBride.
Retreat 2017 with Benjamin De Bivort (and Paul Tillberg and Josh Lillvis, from Janelia).
Nature walk from 2017 retreat. (Virginia is beautiful!)
The retreat always features good food, including Stern's famous Texas Brisket.
We sometimes enjoy a night out in Washington, D.C.
And lately we've been enjoying Emily Berhman's cake-making skills
