SUNY initiated a facilities master planning process to keep ESF’s campus sustainable into the future. Think of this as part SimCity for the college campus – how we manage and build our facilities to meet today’s and tomorrow’s needs. Our ERE Department has access to top-notch facilities, and through faculty grants, alumni donations, and other sponsorship we equip our students and generate top-notch knowledge. ESF has regional properties across NY, including the Thousand Island Biological Station, Adirondack Ecological Center, Wanakena Ranger School, Cranberry Lake Biological Station, Heiberg Memorial Forest and Tully Experiment Station, and the Syracuse campus. This map shows the distribution. The Syracuse campus is illustrated next, showing the plans for ESF!
