Local Field Biology
The Pioneer Valley and and its surrounding environs are the home of an impressive diversity of both habitats and species. The Holyoke Range is considered a biodiversity hotspot and the Connecticut River is the home of several recovering anadromous fish populations. In addition, to these two areas that are just minutes from campus, you will find dozens of other local hotpsots within an hours drive.
The links to local and regional natural areas, organizations and agencies is just a sampling of the local field biology resources you can explore during your time in the valley. If you have any links you would like to add to this list, please contact us.
