Dr. Jeffrey Reutter, Director
Ohio Sea Grant and Stone Laboratory
STONE LABORATORY AWARDED ENHANCEMENT GRANT
Columbus, OH-- F.T. Stone Laboratory, The Ohio State University’s Island
Campus, recently received a grant of $348,000 from the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration. Senator Mike DeWine (R-OH) helped obtain
this grant that will enhance the equipment and facilities used by
students and researchers at Stone Laboratory.
“We really owe a debt of gratitude to Senator DeWine. This award will
greatly enhance our research, education, and outreach programs and impact
thousands of students and scientists studying at the Laboratory each
year,” said Dr. Jeffrey Reutter, Laboratory Director. “With so
many changes occurring in Lake Erie, this is a perfect time to enhance
our research capabilities,” he added.
The grant will be used to enhance the Laboratory’s research, education,
and outreach programs by purchasing new microscopes, computers, and radar
units for the Laboratory’s research vessels the BioLab and
Gibraltar III, and supporting the construction of an educational
kiosk on South Bass Island near the Laboratory. The award will also fund
major renovations to the first floor of the Research Building.
Stone Laboratory is located on Gibraltar Island in Put-in-Bay harbor,
Lake Erie. Established in 1895, it is the oldest freshwater biological
field station in the U.S. Each summer, the Laboratory offers college
courses for credit in the biological sciences and natural resources.
Programs for students in grades 4-12 are offered during the school year.
The Laboratory is also a year-round research facility. To learn more
