University of Kansas Field Station

Make a Gift

Thank you for your interest in providing support for the University of Kansas Field Station. The KU Field Station, founded in 1947 with the dedication of the 590-acre Fitch Natural History Reservation, has grown to include 3,400 acres in northeast Kansas, most in Douglas and Jefferson counties. The Field Station is dedicated to field-based studies, innovative teaching, and research-based conservation and restoration of natural resources. The northernmost portion of the Field Station, about 1,800 contiguous areas just north of Lawrence, Kansas, includes native prairie, forest and wetlands; specialized facilities; and five miles of public trails.  We seek funds to help support our public outreach and teaching efforts, the public trail system, and stewardship of natural areas at the Field Station.
