Excited about Itasca

Students bring an appreciation of the field station and field biology back home by forming the Itasca Booster Club.

2023 Itasca student research scholarship and fellowships available

Applications are open for three awards that support student researchers doing projects at Itasca Biological Station.

Soil horizon swings

Researchers dig into what earthworms wiggling into previously worm-less areas around Itasca and northern Minnesota means for soils.

First fieldwork foray

For the third summer in a row, a White Earth area senior is awarded a field work internship.

Setting the stage

Researchers deploy buoys and teams to collect expansive data sets, and anticipate more research acts to come.

Life on logs

The loss of Minnesota’s largest white pine opens opportunities for researchers to talk about its afterlife, an often ignored, yet rich chapter of its story.

Layered lakes fuel microbial hotspots

It should come as no surprise that plentiful lakes draw many researchers to the Itasca region. The fact that some are drawn to lakes because they resemble iron-rich oceans of a bygone era might come as a surprise.

Excuse you, lake

Study points to microbes below lake surfaces as source of nitrogen gases.
