SCENE, the Scottish Centre for Ecology and the Natural Environment, is the field station of the University of Glasgow.
As part of the Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health & Comparative Medicine, within the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences, SCENE is dedicated to excellence in field research and teaching.
Situated amidst the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, the pioneering teaching and research facility has since 1946 been committed to understanding the mechanisms that govern the natural world and the impact of humans upon these. As of spring of 2014 this new state-of-the-art £7m facility, with a new name, the Scottish Centre for Ecology and the Natural Environment (SCENE), was completed on this unique site in the National Park. With sustainable construction and energy efficiency as priorities, it is one of the ‘greenest’ buildings in Scotland.
SCENE’s facilities have been completely replaced and greatly expanded, thanks to major donor engagement and EU investment through the INTERREG IV programme (“IBIS”-project). With sustainable construction and energy efficiency as priorities, these facilities are among the ‘greenest’ buildings in Scotland.
For every paper copy of a workshop/course booklet requested by a participant for a course held at SCENE Field Station, £5.00 is donated by PR~statistics to the Loch Lomond andTrossachs National Park to compensate/offset the carbon footprint of printing a paper version – this is done for all venues situated in National Parks that host our courses.
