The new Marcell Experimental Forest research headquarters was completed in 2005. The new facility accommodates the expanding collaborative research at the MEF. With approximately 2,500 sq ft., the building provides office space, laboratories, conference facilities that seat about 30 people, and living quarters for visiting researchers and graduate students. It provides considerable interpretive and display space for scientific demonstrations, tour groups, and workshops. Restrooms are large enough to accommodate larger groups, staff, visiting researchers, and graduate students. Associated with the main building is an 870-sq ft two-stall garage, heated shop, and storage facility.
The old Marcell Field Lab, built in 1963, consists of a 960-sq ft building with a kitchen, bath, two bedrooms and a room that serves as a meeting and sample prep area with some counter space, cabinets, and sink. The old site also has a one-stall garage for storing a tractor, mowers, and equipment used at the Marcell Experimental Forest (MEF). The old headquarters is currently being used for storage, staging of field activities and for overflow accommodations.
