The Firestone Station

The Firestone Center for Restoration Ecology is a 145 acre farm in Costa Rica donated to Pitzer College in 2005 by the ecologist Diane Firestone.  Once a desiccated cattle ranch, Finca La Isla de Cielo is now a flourishing sanctuary for native plants and wildlife.  The farm is home to the Firestone Center, which serves as a base for undergraduate education and research.
