Our Story: A Realm of Resources

Nourished by the tenets of education, conservation and propagation, the Center takes the bounty of waterfowl and other plant and animal life in the 500-acre Field Station and runs with it.

Partnerships with organizations like the Audubon Society and the Akron Zoological Park broaden the experiential and research imprint of the Center.

The James H. Barrow Field Station, with its approximately 400 acres, also features:
• Frohring Laboratory Building with a state-of-the-art laboratory
• Observation Building
• Environmental Art Studio Barn
