ology and Prof. George Burns, of the:
department of botany became inter-i
ested in getting a place for summer
work in the natural sciences away
from the campus. In 1908 the de-
partment of surveying of the College
of Engineering had bought a tract
Iof land called the Bogardus tract, on
Douglas Lake, for a surveying camp,
and part of this land was given to
the Biological Station by the Re-
At first there was only a single
log cabin, onto which doors, windows.
and a roof had to be added, and this
served as a laboratory and general
headquarters and storehouse during
the first session of the camp. Living
quarters were established in tents
erectedaround the cabin.BProfessor
Reighard and Professor Burns had
two assistants to help them give the
courses, and the enrollment for the
first summer was only 13 students.
Now 93 Cabins
Last year the station was equipped
with 93 cabins housing three person
apiece, for living quarters, nine lab-
oratory buildings, a mess hall, aquar-
iums, insectaries, clubhouses, and rec-
reation fields. Each of the cabins
had concrete floors, stoves, beds and
mattresses, screens, and electric light-
ing. The kitchen is equipped with
electric range and stove facilities,
electric refrigerators, and an electric
dishwasher, mixer, and potato-parer.
The situation of the camp was
termed excellent by Professor LaRue,
even though it was not selected as the
result of any suryey through the
state. It is in a region that is close
to a great number of different types
of natural habitats and conditions for
s tudy. Part of the Bogardus Tract
lies in the great Northern hardwood
region, and part lies in the Northern
coniferous region. Thus many tree
species are to be found at the camp,
