field stations

Hiram features two biological field stations. Both are active research and educational facilities that deliver enrichment and inspiration for students in all majors.

Our Field Stations are proud members of the Organization of Biological Field Stations, and the Lake Erie Allegheny Partnership for Biodiversity.

Less than three miles from campus, the James H. Barrow Biological Field Station is an active research and educational facility that not only enhances the science and environmental studies programs, but also delivers enrichment and inspiration for students in all majors. A variety of outreach programs are offered, in addition to approximately five miles of hiking trails.

Located in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Hiram College also has a rustic camp called the Northwoods Field Station. Students and alumni can visit Northwoods to reflect on the beauty of Hiawatha National Forest and Cherry Lake right on our front steps or to conduct research and take courses.
