Field Trips and Tours*
The Biology Field Station offers an interactive setting where students and other visitors become involved in doing science and other STEM lessons, receive a tour of the laboratories or partake in a variety of outdoor activities.
Throughout fall and spring semesters, day-long field trips are offered for K-12 students. These events are conducted by the Field Station staff, along with Thomas More EDU and STEM students who have developed, inquiry and standard-based activities that focus on the biodiversity and ecology of the Ohio River watershed.
The faculty and students at the Center educate and engage visitors about the Ohio River ecosystem and surrounding watershed, teach the value of the watershed to those who live within it, and empower students to make a positive impact on the River and surrounding environment.
* Field Trips and Tours are limited to 30 visitors:
