Itasca Biological Station and Laboratories

Itasca Biological Station and Laboratories is among a global network of field stations that enable "place-based" teaching, research, and public engagement. Itasca, however, is like no other place. It is a sentinel on the edge of forest and prairie biomes, a source for waters of the Mississippi River, and a common ground for people in nature since 1909.
