The Mission of the Blakely Island Field Station (BIFS) is to support excellence in education and research in field-based environmental and physical sciences while supporting the preservation and wise use of Blakely Island ecosystems. Blakely is the fourth largest island in the San Juan archipelago in the northwest corner of the State of Washington (San Juan County).
In spring of 2018 Seattle Pacific University’s journalism students produced a variety of stories as they traveled alongside biology, ecology, education, and psychology students. Please explore the site to hear from students and professors, explore the island, and learn of its history.
Directions to the station and various forms and applications are contained in Planning.
