    MSU's Kellogg Biological Station (KBS) is one of North America's premier inland field stations. Located between Battle Creek and Kalamazoo, KBS is known for its contributions to ecological science and evolutionary biology. KBS's mission is to develop programs in research, education, and extension directed toward a comprehensive understanding of natural and managed ecosystems and the conservation of natural resources. KBS is a field site for ecological research not only because of its excellent facilities but also because of the exceptional diversity of field research sites that are readily accessible from the station. Much of the habitat and species diversity that characterize the upper Midwest can be found in the local area. KBS provides educational tours of the Manor House, Bird Sanctuary and Kellogg Farm, as well as many events and workshops for K-12 educators, students, and the general public.
