dc.description.abstract Planning for Rice Creek Field Station began in 1962 and the station began operating in 1966. At that time much of the land that comprised field station grounds was in hayfields and very young evergreen plantations. Since then the station has gradually become an island of natural growth surrounded by expanding urbanization from the city of Oswego. Plant growth and succession has been rapid with the result that the evergreen plantations have become dense stands and much of the open space has given way to thickets of shrubs and young trees. By 1984, it had become apparent that a change in management plans was necessary in order to maintain a maximum range of habitats with the accompanying variety of plant and animal species. In order to do this it would be necessary to make a detailed analysis of the current status of field station environments. With the support of a grant from the Institute of Museum Services, John Weeks was employed to make this analysis. John was responsible for the original planning of Rice Creek Field Station and has had extensive experience in conservation, land management and nature education. The field station provides research, educational, and recreational facilities to the college and the community. The aim of this report is to provide guidelines for maximum long term multipurpose use with minimum adverse affects on field station environments. Donald D.
