Image of tours in the Biology Department.

The CWU Biology department offers the community several tours. Visitors to our facilities can see our greenhouse, listen to a reptile lesson, or check out the wildlife at our Engelhorn Pond. Our laboratories are equipped with dissecting and compound microscopes to look at plankton samples collected at Engelhorn Pond. Special request tours can be offered covering fungi, birds and current departmental research projects. We can accommodate up to 48 participants. 

Class, home school and community groups are invited to schedule a tour.  Please first check the tour calendar for available dates and times and then schedule your tour using the linked form.

Groups outside of Kittitas County will be charged a $1.00 per student fee to help defray our costs.

We would like to share pictures on this website of students attending these tours.  If your group would like to participate, we will require a signed photo release for each of the students in your group.
