University of Michigan Biologcal Station|
Cheyboygan County, Michigan
University of Michigan Biologcal Station property has grown to approximately 10,000 contiguous acres on and around Douglas Lake. UMBS also owns a 3,200 acre tract on Sugar Island in the St. Mary's River near Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. All of it is open to the public. Almost all of it is designated as a nature research area, with minimal disturbances allowed. The campus is laid out in the form of a small village along South Fishtail Bay on Douglas Lake. There are approximately 150 buildings for housing, dining, teaching, research, maintenance, and recreation. UMBS holdings, together with other public lands in the region, contain a rich diversity of natural habitats: extensive forests of pine, northern hardwoods, conifer swamps, and successional aspen stands, fields and meadows, pine plains, all types of wetlands, and rivers and streams.
