New paper from RMBL on field station operations

From Ian Billick…

RMBL conducted a series of visits to institutions similar to field
stations, but different. These included research institutions (NSF and
NIH funded), a zoo, an aquarium, and an environmental education
organization. The idea was to see how similar institutions operated and
see if there were any ideas that might help field stations. Some of the
information is focused on operating a 501c3 research/education
organization, but some of the ideas that emerged have relevance
independent of the governance structure.

We wrote up the findings and OBFS members can find a copy on the OBFS
webpage.

Let me know if you have any feedback or questions. Thanks!
