Early in the last century, the College began to assemble a system of properties that would broadly represent New York’s rich ecological diversity for scientific study and instruction. Today, approximately 25,000 acres of regional campus lands and facilities offer unparalleled learning and research opportunities.

Students participate in hands-on field and lab activities in locations where state-of-the-art technology is as much at home as it is on the main campus. Faculty and student researchers are at work advancing knowledge in fields such as forest ecology, wildlife biology, ecophysiology, biogeochemistry and silviculture.

The size, scope, and ecological diversity of ESF's regional properties make it unique among institutions of higher education. Together, these lands constitute one of the largest college campuses in the world.
