Green Oaks: few small colleges are fortunate enough to have a field station so close by, as well as one with large restored prairies, oak woodlands, and a diversity of other habitats.

Steve Fox Yasukawa '06

I continue to believe that Green Oaks was the most significant element of my education at Knox. Even with all of the changes that time and subsequent groups contribute to the property, it is the single place where I feel completely at home. Whenever I am in the general vicinity I make a point to visit there, even though I usually leave scratching the poison ivy blisters that spread everywhere. I've been in Seattle almost five years now and been to Washington's rainforest, glacial lakes, craggy mountains, vast Palouse planes, and up its gigantic volcanoes. I worked in Alaska where there are more glaciers than people, and the geology is greater than that of heaven. That said none of it is as significant as Green Oaks (our woodlands, our cornfields). That place will always be home.
