NEW WEBSITE COMING IN APRIL 2018. PLEASE EMAIL OUR NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR WITH ANY QUESTIONS IN THE MEANTIME email@example.com
We are a research, education and conservation organization headquartered on a 900-acre field station, just north of Warrenton, in the Virginia Piedmont. With forest, shrub field, grassland, and wetland habitats, Clifton Institute’s (Environmental Studies on the Piedmont) field station is a rich resource for native plant and wildlife studies.
The Clifton Institute emphasizes conservation. We integrate nature with human activity and development needs so that natural resources are sustainably renewed instead of depleted. We believe this depends upon bringing scientists and the public together in partnership. We do this by encouraging community participation in our research through hands-on education and volunteer programs. We encourage the public, K-12 teachers, university faculty, researchers and other interested groups to use our facility. Check out the Calendar of Events or contact us to set up a new event.
