Bowdoin Marine Laboratory

The Bowdoin Marine Laboratory is the scientific component of Bowdoin’s Coastal Studies Center. We are geographically centered on a former farm, consisting of 118 acres of coastal spruce-pine forest with a few acres of old field habitat. Our accessible location on Harpswell Sound, and diversity of natural habitats opens up a wide range of marine, estuarine, and terrestrial research and teaching possibilities.
