Appalachian Laboratory

Your gift supports science in your community.

From the headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay, scientists conduct research on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems in many parts of the world, with an emphasis on the rich and diverse environments of Western Maryland and the broader Appalachian region. Founded in Frostburg in 1962, Appalachian Laboratory scientists advise state, national and international leaders on air and water quality, wildlife management, forest and agricultural management, and biodiversity conservation, while also training and engaging tomorrow’s researchers and environmental stewards through advanced degree offerings, citizen science initiatives, and K-12 curriculum development.
