Field Station | Field Trips

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, spring and summer terms, 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 the surrounding environment.

Field trips cost $100 for 10-15 students, $125 for 16-20 students, $150 for 21-25 students, and $175 for 26-30 students. Groups smaller than 10 and larger than 30 can be accommodated after inquiry with field station staff. Field trips including boat activities cost an additional $100 per boat. There is no cancellation fee unless the trip is cancelled within one week of the proposed date, in which case a $50 cancellation fee will be applied.
