Welcome

For more than 60 years, the Cornell Biological Field Station at Shackelton Point has addressed issues of changing ecosystems within the lakes of New York State and beyond. We continue to collaborate with groups to explore the effects of invasive species and climate change, and the effects on aquatic ecosystems.
