Highlands Biological Station is open to visitors. Masks are still required in the Nature Center, but are no longer required on campus, including the Botanical Garden. Highlands Biological Station is offering academic and public programming this summer. For the safety of the HBS summer community, before being permitted to work or study at HBS prospective summer students, teaching faculty, and researchers must provide documentation of (1) having received a Covid-19 vaccine or (2) a negative Covid-19 test taken within 3 days of planned arrival.

School Programs

Highlands Biological Station has an active K-12 school outreach program that brings the wonders of the natural world and STEM into the classroom. We also can cater field trips, including overnight trips to HBS, so students can explore our native Botanical Garden, look for salamanders in nearby woods and streams, and learn to use equipment such as microscopes.
