The Station, along with 17 acres, was donated to the Division of Biology in 1999. It is located in Gatlinburg, Tennessee in the Greenbrier area. After an extensive renovation process, it opened for use in April 2004. The Station is composed of two facilities, a research facility, and a teaching facility. The Research Facility consists of three separate buildings, two for housing and the third as a small lab. The Teaching Facility sleeps 28, has a bathhouse, kitchen, and open pavilion. The Bunk House can be used as overflow for both facilities, sleeps 7 and has a bath. Find more information about all facilities in the user manual and the pictorial views.
