Centers, Institutes, & Preserve

Centers, Institutes, and the Preserve—united in advancing environmental issues

The Research and Teaching Preserve

The Integrated Program in the Environment oversees the Indiana University Research and Teaching Preserve. The mission of the Preserve is to provide natural field settings for research and teaching that complement existing facilities and infrastructure at Indiana University.

Diverse natural habitats–including forests at various successional stages, old field, ridge and ravine topography, lakes, and a large perennial stream span the Preserve’s nearly 1,600 acres. The properties and 6000 square-foot field lab are close to campus and available for research, teaching, and outreach activities.
