Ball State's Field Station and Environmental Education Center (FSEEC) provides hands-on learning and observation of nature and encourages exploration of natural processes by students of all ages. Our research activities are directed toward understanding human impact on ecological processes and communities, and we share our resources and data.

Our center is a collaboration of the Departments of Biology, Natural Resources and Environmental Management, Landscape Architecture, Geology, and others. FSEEC is comprised of six properties totaling 425 acres.
