Noblet Field Station Photo

In 2014, Bert Noblet’s granddaughters visited the cabin which they remembered well from childhood.

In 2009, John Noblet, a grandson of U.J. “Bert” and Gladys Noblet and his wife Barb attended the GLC Open House and told the group assembled some of their memories of what had been the family camp.

 Noblet Field Station

The Noblet Field Station is the staging area for many of the Conservancy's activities.

In the past, it has been the location of several of Headwaters Environmental Station's Ecology Research Internships and Field Studies. These included student work regarding algae, cavity nesting birds, warblers. and clams.

More recently, it has been the site of the Aquatic Ecology course offered through Michigan Tech's Summer Youth Program.

The Field Station has also been the site of an Artist-in-Residence program, and it is the home of GLC's open house activities. Other programs and workshops have also made use of the site.
