The Queen’s University Biological Station and its Director Dr. Stephen Lougheed are working hard to make sure scientists, researchers and the public have the tools and opportunities to conduct field research necessary to track environmental change. From frogs to fish, the over 50 buildings have hosted research on ecology, evolution, conservation, geography and environmental science for over 70 years. Not only scientists and researchers can access QUBS, but citizen scientists are also welcome to take advantage of a variety of different programs run out of the Elbow Lake Biodiversity Centre. Dedicated staff like Emily Verhoek, the Centres Outreach & Teaching Coordinator, are reaching out to people of all ages.

Listen to Episode 169 of Blue Fish Radio to hear more about the exciting research underway and how you too can get involved.
