Self-guided walking tour opens for season

KBS LTER project manager Stacey Vanderwulp helps set up signs for the walking tour.

KBS LTER project manager Stacey Vanderwulp sets up a sign for the walking tour in front of our organic winter wheat plot.

We are excited to announce that the KBS LTER self-guided Agriculture & Ecology Walking Tour is now open for the season!

The walking tour offers a chance for the community to explore the research taking place at our main Long-term Ecological Research experiment site. Visitors can enjoy nature while learning how our scientists are researching ways to help make farming profitable while protecting and enhancing our state’s natural resources.

A colorful trail guide leads visitors through 16 stations along the ¾-mile trail that takes about an hour to complete.

The trail is open dawn to dusk, May 1 through November 1. No pets are allowed. Trail head and parking at the LTER Field Lab at 10378 40th Street (across from the KBS Dairy), Hickory Corners, MI 49060. A flier with information about the tour is available for download here >>.

We hope to see you soon!
