The Queen's University Biological Station (QUBS) has been a pivotal part of research and teaching at Queen's University for more than six decades. Located 50 km north of Kingston, QUBS encompasses approximately 3000 hectares of property, a range of habitat types typical of Eastern Ontario, and many species of conservation concern in Canada. The Station hosts myriad field courses, school groups, and outreach workshops annually.
