There’s a lot to explore on the MDI Biological Laboratory campus: research buildings where discoveries are made, cottages where you can watch the tide rise and fall, seasonal laboratories that are 100 years old, and even a few trails winding down to Frenchman Bay. Though our campus is small, it hasn’t always been easy to “get there from here”…until now. Much-loved local artist Mike Duffy water colored a map that we think perfectly conveys the spirit of MDIBL and the village of Salisbury Cove, right down to Star Point and the teeny tiny Post Office down the street.
The original map is on display in the Smith-Kingsley Building (number 11, if you’re curious), but we wanted to share it with the global MDIBL community and worked with designer and developer, Sam Giberson, and Cushman Creative’s Karan Cushman, to digitize the painting, as well as provide additional information and images of many of the buildings on our main campus. If you’re coming here for a course and want to know where you’re headed, or maybe you just want to take a virtual tour of our campus, now you can visit MDIBL from anywhere in the world.
