Note: The Resources Section and affiliated pages require substantial work yet. We have basic MS Excel files we are happy to share at this point, but would welcome volunteers who would like to help us work these files into usable more interactive databases.

Cedar Point Biological Station, like any biological station, or marine lab, can be recognized as a field-based museum of natural history. We encourage you to see CPBS as a very large research and education collection; I believe this is, in essence, what the Gainesforth family intended when the ranch was sold to the University of Nebraska. Like a traditional museum any one who can demonstrate a reasonable research or educational need will be granted access. With this privilege, you will have access to a unique collection of research materials which cover a broad spectrum of the sciences. CPBS and adjacent properties are managed by Nebraska Game and Parks (NGP), Nebrask Public Power District (NPPD), Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District (CNPPID), and private ranchers who function as the collection managers, curators, docents, educators, and research staff in this museum.
