Overview of Facilities at Hubbard Brook
Hubbard Brook is not only a research site, but also a comprehensive field station and education campus that offers housing facilities, a laboratory, and conference and meeting spaces to visiting scientists, teachers, and students. HBRF facilities complement the Robert S. Pierce Ecosystem Laboratory, which is managed by the USDA Forest Service. When not in use by Hubbard Brook scientists, opportunities exist for educational institutions, nonprofit organizations and government agencies to use HBRF facilities for retreats and other functions. Hubbard Brook facilities include:
The Pleasant View Farm complex consists of a 3-story farmhouse with dormitory style living quarters; a newly updated laboratory; and a garage for dirty lab work. There is also space for tent camping when other accommodations are full.
