The Biology Field Station offers a wide variety of outreach programs for K-12 schools and the general public which offer visitors a chance to experience, up close, the Ohio River and its rich biodiversity.
Formal programs include our “STEM-on-the-River” daylong field trips for K-12 schools and our TSI Summer STEM Institute, a weeklong camp for high schoolers.
Our summer seminar series features STEM professionals from a variety of backgrounds who present on topics related to conservation, ecology, and environmental stewardship. They typically occur on Thursday evenings from 7:00-8 p.m. throughout the summer and the general public is invited to attend these seminars.
In addition, we host the annual ORSANCO River Sweep, a Fishing Rodeo, open houses, tours, and other events for visitors of all ages. The Field Station Lodge also hosts overnight events for church groups, private parties, and corporate retreats.
