Living sustainably in place at Grinnell College, April 12-May 3, 2014
On Saturday, September 20, 2008, we celebrated the 40th anniversary of Grinnell's 365-acre biological field station.
Since its purchase in 1968, CERA has been an exceptional resource for engaging students in environmental inquiry, providing inspiration and raw materials for artistic expression, teaching students of all ages about the history and character of our past, present, and future landscape, and serving as a model for land preservation and restoration.
