Artists interested in working and living on the banks of the St. Croix River in summer 2016 are invited to apply to the research station’s Pine Needles program. Applications are due Feb. 29.

The Pine Needles program offers an opportunity for natural history artists and writers to spend two to four weeks at the historic cabin in Marine on St. Croix. Pine Needles was originally owned by the Dunn family, noted historians and conservationists.

Participants immerse themselves in a field experience, gather resource materials and ideas, and interact with environmental scientists and the local community.
