What are experiment station research field laboratories? The goal of these field labs
is to conduct research and provide rapid delivery of information to clientele in
the region and State through interdisciplinary research and Extension programs.
Research Facilities On-Campus:

Teaching/Research Facilities Off-Campus:
In most parks and natural areas, regulations discourage or prohibit collecting specimens,
manipulating habitats, and disturbing plants and animals. While such restrictions
can be important in protecting the integrity of the environment, they also make
it difficult, if not impossible, to conduct many types of scientific activities.
Field Stations provide us with a place to study nature with fewer distractions and
greater flexibility - a place where you can establish experiments without worrying
about someone pulling up your survey flags, stepping on your study organisms, or
walking away with your expensive data logger.
Therefore, it is no surprise that field stations have been at the forefront of agricultural,
biological and natural resource research and education for more than a century.
