UW-Stevens Point students and faculty have access to extensive tracts of private, county and state land near campus, which provide a great diversity of habitats for scientific investigation. We are able to study in 40,000 acres of private, county and state land within 20 miles of campus, providing a great diversity of habitats for scientific investigations.
The UWSP Department of Biology has a strong heritage of field work. Many biology faculty have field-oriented research programs and many courses include field trips as part of their laboratory component.
Faculty offer regularly scheduled field study courses, such as our Hawaii ecology 3-credit course over winterim, not only limited to biology majors.
