Teaching at Ordway-Swisher
OSBS provides a high quality year-around learning environment and the opportunity to provide valuable field experiences to students. The Station’s education mission is to serve as a teaching and training platform for students of all ages to gain hands-on experience in research processes, Florida’s natural history, resource management, and conservation.
Education activities include a mix of college level field courses and field trips from UF and other academic institutions, professional training, extension workshops, and visits from K-12 schools. Although most courses are natural resource based, the station is available to accommodate a variety of education activities and experiences.
