Carroll University Greene Field Station Outdoor Laboratory
The Greene Field Station is an open-air classroom of woodlands, streams, springs and marshes, where students and faculty study rare ecosystems, their flora and fauna, and the impact of invasive species.
Donated to Carroll by the family of Howard and Else Greene in 1969, the property includes more than 60 acres of wild wetlands in the glaciated landscape of the southern Kettle Moraine. The land is a gift, in many senses. And for generations, Carroll students and faculty have been stewards of its vital mission to research, protect, promote and educate, mining it for wisdom and seeking ways to safeguard it for future generations.
The research strengths of Carroll faculty continually drive new initiatives and experiential learning here. Carroll students participate in field investigations in ecology, botany, hydrology, animal behavior, climatology, and other disciplines. In addition to opportunities for outdoor laboratory and research activities, the Greene Field Station offers work experience for students interested in hands-on management of private resource conservancy sites. This site is jointly managed by Carroll's Environmental Science and Biology programs.
