Multi-use Classoom
The Station has a 32-person classroom at the Duke Campbell bldg (Butler bldg) that can be rented for teaching, trainings, and meetings. Audiovisual equipment and high speed Wi-Fi Internet access are available. The classroom furniture layout can be rearranged to meet course needs. The building also includes restrooms and a galley kitchen. Please see fee schedule for charges related to using the multi-use classroom.

In 2012 OSBS received a generous donation of nine acres and a beautiful lake cottage adjacent to the Station. The Cofrin cottage will be used to provide onsite lodging to visitors who need overnight accomidations. The cottage will be able to house up to three individuals. Renovation of the cottage is currently ongoing with occupancy expected in fall of 2013. Please check back as we post updated information on the availability of the cottage.

Conservation Center
Centraly located in OSBS is a 3 acre area identified as the the Conservation Center. Located here are equipment barns and structures that support the Station conservation and management programs. Development of additional buildings and support facilities are planned for this area in the future including a multi-use building as well as green houses.
