The Conard Environmental Research Area, located eleven miles from the Grinnell College Campus, is a 365-acre field station used for class field trips, student and faculty research, and quiet enjoyment. CERA is an exceptional resource for engaging students in environmental inquiry, providing inspiration and raw materials for artistic expression, teachings students and community members of all ages about the history and character of our past, present, and future landscape, and serving as a model for land preservation and ecological restoration.
The Grinnell College Libraries' collections are housed in Burling Library, the Curriculum Library in Steiner Hall, and the Kistle Science Library in the Noyce Science Center. The Libraries' primary purpose is to support the research and study needs of Grinnell College students working within the College's liberal arts curriculum. We also support the basic research needs of the faculty. Our collections contain material in many languages and formats, traditional and electronic.
