The mission of CSNS is to foster a community that sustains ecological systems, educates for environmental awareness and global thinking, and promotes local action.
This Center functions in part through the James H. Barrow Field Station, which features an old growth beech-maple forest that is the second largest remaining uncut in Ohio.
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
- Waterfowl Conservation Building
