Calder Center lodge

Located just 25 miles north of New York City, the Louis Calder Center is Fordham's biological field station where we provide opportunities for students and faculty to study the connections between human actions and the changing landscape in laboratories integrated within a field environment. 

Established in 1967, the Calder Center consists of 113 forested acres with a 10 acre lake. We are one of the few field stations in North America with relatively undisturbed communities near a large urban center.
