Reis Biological Station


Located in the Ozarks, the Reis Biological Station is home to 225 acres of upland oak-hickory forest.  The station also harbors short leaf pine, calcareous ferns, and a diverse group of wildlife. The unique setting emerges from the Emmince-Potosi Limestone formation, which outcrops there and forms the foundation for glades, caves, springs, ponds, rivers and reservoirs. Reis Biological Station is the destination for field trips, mini-courses, and students engaging in research.
