The Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, founded in 1983 and located in Millbrook, New York, is one of the world’s leading independent environmental research organizations. Areas of expertise include disease ecology, forest and freshwater health, climate change, urban ecology and invasive species.

The institute’s campus is situated on 2,000 acres in New York’s Hudson Valley. The site is home to a research complex, analytical laboratories, an environmental monitoring station, classrooms, an education department and an auditorium. The grounds are a laboratory for field research, with extensive studies on the ecology of Lyme disease.

The institute’s scientific research has been instrumental in informing the Clean Air Act, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and environmental management practices throughout the Northeast. Hallmark projects include studies of the impact of acid rain on forests and freshwater ecosystems, unraveling the relationship between biodiversity loss and emerging infectious diseases, and tracking how climate change influences the spread of invasive species.
