We conducted a survey of Kentucky colleges and universities to determine the number of field station sites available for research, educational, and outreach activities. As a first attempt, we were able to locate and provide basic data for 23. Sites range from thousands of acres to just a few. Some have full, year around research and education programs, while others are largely undeveloped. Existing sites are located primarily in the eastern half of the state with only 4 in the western portion, thus some ecoregions have several while others have none. Although not directly surveyed, website addresses are given that connect to more than 200 state and federal natural areas in Kentucky. It is our hope that the information presented here will stimulate the use of the State's field station sites and point out the needs for acquiring and developing others.
