As of November 30, Casa Criollo opened for business. Emily McKinnon of York University was the cabin’s first researcher/ guest. Small improvements will continue to be made over the course of the field season to finalize this cozy space.


Casa Criollo is furnished with two handcrafted hardwood beds (full and twin), a desk and chair, and a hammock. It is also outfitted with a colorful hand-painted Mexican ceramic sink, beautiful hardwood floors, screened walls and skylights, making it one of the brightest facilities at BFREE.

Researchers, educators, independent travelers and families enjoy staying in these comfortable cabins at the field station.
