Ecology Processing Lab (EcoLab)

The Ecology Processing Lab (or "EcoLab") is a multi-functional space for a variety of ecology-oriented students, faculty and staff that work directly in the field.  As groups or individuals return from conducting field work, the EcoLab is a space to conduct processing work such as weighing, sieving, drying, etc.  The EcoLab is located directly adjacent to the loading dock doors on the west side of the Berry Center for convenient access and unloading.  >> Click here for a list of equipment available in the EcoLab.
