Learning Opportunities at Kemp Station

Public education is a vital component of Kemp Station’s mission. Members of the community are invited to participate and take advantage of what Kemp has to offer. Events and resources are designed to enhance public understanding of environmental topics and promote the wise stewardship of our natural resources. Collectively, these activities embody the Wisconsin Idea, namely, extending the boundaries of the University to the boundaries of the state.

Outreach Sessions: Each year Kemp Station conducts a series of educational sessions on various natural resource topics, typically held during the summer months. Guest speakers include researchers, natural resource professionals, and educators who are working on research projects or who specialize in specific topics. These sessions are usually free of charge.

Kemp’s Point: Kemp Station publishes an informative newsletter called Kemp’s Point. The newsletter, distributed twice a year, highlights recent activities at Kemp Station and includes stories on research projects, field courses, and interesting facts about the natural world around us. Readers can view current and past newsletters on-line, or receive the current copy in the mail.

Hamilton Roddis Memorial Lecture Series: This Memorial Lecture Series honors the late Hamilton Roddis who served as Secretary, President and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Roddis Plywood Corporation for more than sixty years.

Internet Resources: Kemp Station is glad to provide a list of Web resources related to natural resources topics. Many of these links are provided by speakers at Kemp outreach sessions.
