FLBS has a long history of working closely with students and the public through education, long-term environmental monitoring, and contributing to the local economy. In addition to providing services to local, regional and national organizations, we help to empower local citizens by disseminating knowledge of water quality and the science behind important environmental issues.
The FLBS is a valuable resource to everyone in northwest Montana, and we would love the opportunity to share what we do with you!
The core mission of the Bio Station is to use field science for the betterment of society. We do this in 3 ways: research, monitoring, and education at all levels.
Science in a file cabinet does little to benefit society. FLBS scientists work diligently to engage and educate the community by translating our science to the general public, school groups, politicians, government officials, natural resource managers and surrounding business leaders. Conveying scientific knowledge amassed by FLBS researchers results in better ecological understanding and conservation successes within the Flathead, Montana, and around the world.
Bio Station researchers regularly give presentations about our work. If you are interested in a presentation to your professional, service or community group, we are happy to discuss options. Please contact our Tom Bansak by email or call (406) 982-3301 x229.
