For nearly 30 years, Stone Lab’s Aquatic Science Field Trip Program has given students in grades 4-12 and adults an opportunity to become Lake Erie scientists for a day. Participants venture out on a research vessel, peer through microscopes, and dissect fish as they get out in the field to experience the natural world. One-day trips can be scheduled in four- to eight-hour blocks, depending on chosen activities. Two-day trips consist of eight hours of instruction and include an overnight stay in the island dormitory. All field trips, no matter the length, can accommodate up to 80 people.

One- to two-hour historical and scientific tours can be arranged for any group. The experience includes looks at Cooke Castle, Perry’s Lookout, the island’s glacial grooves, and the Stone Laboratory classroom building, where participants learn about current research and take part in brief activities, as well as the Aquatic Visitors Center, a former State Fish Hatchery.
