Travel Support

Get your class out of the classroom. The Therkildsen Field Station at Emiquon (TFSE) invites UIS Faculty to apply for support to bring classes to the TFSE. The TFSE provides a home base for your course to utilize while exploring the Emiquon Preserve, the Dickson Mounds Museum, and the nearby wildlife refuges (Chautauqua and Emiquon).

A wide range of courses may benefit from these day-trips, including: photography, creative writing, ecology, painting, history, anthropology, and chemistry.

Support is available to cover round-trip transportation from UIS to the Field Station. It will be your responsibility to make reservations with the UIS Motor Pool.
