Recommended Posts

Come study on the Highlands Plateau - a global biodiversity hotspot!
Enjoy the cool high elevations of the Southern Appalachian Mountains this summer while you earn credit and gain field research experience in any of our 1 or 2-week accredited biology field courses. Now in our 91st year, Highlands Biological Station offers over a dozen field courses taught by nationally recruited experts in their field — with hundreds of square miles of National Forest and National Parks as your classroom!

The Highlands Biological Station, in North Carolina, offers courses each summer at the advanced undergraduate/graduate level dealing with the ­ special biological features of the southern Appalachians in areas of study that are appropriate for investigation at a mountain field station.
