Biological Field Station
The Station welcomes scientists and advanced students from all parts of the country and from abroad to carry out their research projects. Investigators live in comfortable cabins or dorm rooms provided with linens and blankets, and take their meals, cafeteria-style, in the pleasant atmosphere of a common dining room. The main house contains our dining room and lounge with fireplace. Outside is a large swimming pool, volleyball court, and horseshoe pit. The area is laced with trails for hiking and climbing amongst spectacular scenery. The Station is open year-round but scientists must cook for themselves from early November through early March. Facilities in the Osborn Memorial Laboratory complex include library, insect collection, herbarium, vertebrate collections, photography lab., etc. Completed in 1992, the Technical Equipment Laboratory provides excellent microscopic facilities, constant temperature chambers, chemical hood, precision balances, centrifuges, etc. Outdoor animal pens and an Animal Behavior Observatory afford outstanding facilities for behavioral ecology studies. Classes from colleges and universities may use the Station. Amateur naturalists and bird watchers are accommodated when space is available.
