It’s that time of year when we release the 2018 edition of the Spring Harbor Reports Updates. This year’s packet is once again a glossy 4-color version of our online Harbor Reports. It contains 87 reports, for a total of 348 pages, and the packet includes an index of the contained reports. These reports have minor changes to the web-based reports as they are dated 2018, and contain new footers and headers better suited for the written report. As usual, the ordering information and pricing is available online or by calling the office. We are able to keep the price the same as last year.
