Itasca Biological Station and Laboratories

Organization profile

Organization profile

The Itasca Biological Station and Laboratories is one of the oldest continuously operated inland field stations in the United States. It is the perfect place to study many organisms in their natural environments because the Station is near the intersection of the northern coniferous forest, the eastern deciduous forest, and the western prairie.
