Funded Residencies

Orange horizontal rule


Cranberry Lake Biological Station is located in the heart of the Adirondack Park, on the ancestral lands of the Mohawk Nation of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and has been in use as a living classroom for 105 years. CLBS provides seclusion for research, teaching, contemplation, and creative endeavors.

Three, three−week residencies are available each year, with some flexibility based on the writer's schedule: May 22 − June 10, June 12 − July 1, July 17 − August 5. Housing, meals and a workspace will be provided, in addition to a $500 travel stipend. The resident will also have access to all facilities including canoes, classroom spaces, microscopes, and the ability to join classes if desired. Additional needs and requests will be considered on a case−by−case basis.



CLBS will host two 8 week paid internships for scientific illustration. Each will work on a specific project with faculty members to create didactic materials for the station and the general public. Housing and all meals are provided. The two projects are below:

  1. Manual of Pathogens/Forest Health of the Adirondacks—this intern will create the illustration for what would become a manual for students and local communities to identify tree diseases and pests—illustrations of fungi, diseases, and entomological effects

  2. Aquatics Handbook − with flexibility based on intern's interest, illustrations to create a manual for the aquatic vegetation, aquatic invertebrates, and/or zooplankton
