Mountain Lake Biological Station presents their 2019 Mountain Lake Biological Station Open House on Saturday, July 20, 2019.

Mountain Lake Biological Station (MLBS), a University of Virginia field station in Pembroke, VA, will hold its annual Open House. This family-friendly event offers the opportunity to meet MLBS scientists and artists, explore historic facilities, and learn first-hand about Station research. The public is invited to get up close and personal with a variety of organisms, visit open labs and art studios, get their feet wet in the pond, make arts and crafts, participate in a variety of hands-on activities, take tours of the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) tower site, and more.

MLBS is a diverse community of scientists, instructors, research interns, students, and artists from around the world who conduct research, take field-based courses, and create art on top of beautiful Salt Pond Mountain. The biological station is adjoined by the Jefferson National Forest, the Mountain Lake Wilderness, and the Mountain Lake Lodge and Conservancy.

Other notes: Carpooling is encouraged as parking is limited. Dogs are not allowed.

Directions: From Blacksburg, take Rte. 460 past Newport and turn right onto Rte. 700. From Pearisburg, take Rte. 460 past Pembroke and turn left onto Rte. 613. Follow either road up the mountain toward the Mountain Lake Lodge, where the roads merge. Continue onto the Lodge grounds and follow signs toward Treetops, passing above the lakebed. The road will turn to gravel. Continue until you reach a fork in the road, and bear right onto Salt Pond Road. At the MLBS welcome sign, take the right fork and follow signs to parking.
