Excellent field station in a perfect location for marine ecology studies. Staff is excellent, sleeping quarters are comfortable, food is acceptable camp food. The classroom and lab facilities are very nice and are perfect for a class, research, or an engaging camp.

CBFS does a great job engaging the local community to learn about and help contribute to the local environmental health and knowledge base. Their staff are selfless and really enjoy teaching our kids. If you are in town on a weekend, take advantage of their programs.
