Science Day 2016Sitting on a 17.6-acre parcel of rustic land, the University of Cincinnati Center for Field Studies (UCCFS) is one of the university’s most advanced teaching and research facilities. The renovated farm blends high-level science with deep-woods know-how through a timeless connection to the great outdoors.

Join fellow alumni and their families at UCCFS during Alumni Weekend for a family friendly day of nature hikes, educational talks on sustainability and great food. Read about our previous event, Science Day, here.
