Bartlett-Crowe Field Station
Take Your Education Outdoors.
In Fall 2011, Dr. Charles Bartlett generously donated a 72-acre property outside of Glade Spring, Virginia, 15 minutes from Emory & Henry College.
Dr. Bartlett’s gift is now the Bartlett-Crowe Field Station, providing education, research, and service opportunities in the Appalachian forest and river ecosystems by offering innovative field-based education programs and research facilities for faculty, students, local educators, and community members and partners.
The diverse landscape offers project opportunities in a wide variety of fields, including:
- Wildlife Studies
- Aquatic Chemistry
- Geology and Hydrology
- Wetland Restoration
- … and more!
Students from every academic major can find meaningful ways to engaged at the BCFS.
