SCENE - The University Field Station
In 1946, the University of Glasgow established the first scientific field research and teaching station in Britain on beautiful Loch Lomond in the southern Scottish Highlands. With easy access to habitats of international conservation value, the field station allows for field teaching and research in the biological and environmental sciences in a way that is probably unsurpassed in the UK.
The new facility
Now, a new state-of-the-art £7m facility, with a new name, the Scottish Centre for Ecology and the Natural Environment (SCENE), is planned on this unique site in the National Park. With sustainable construction and energy efficiency as priorities, this will be one of the 'greenest' buildings in Scotland.
Take a video tour of SCENE and find out more about the history of the field station and the research and teaching that now take place as well as our plans for the future - watch the SCENE video.
We have now almost reached our £2m fundraising total and our campaign is officially closed. However we will continue to accept gifts and keep the donor wall open to new or upgraded gifts until spring 2013. We also continue to be grateful for those pledged gifts which will continue over the next few years.
