The Clarion-Limestone Amphibian Research Center

There are about 6000 species of amphibians worldwide. Nearly half face extinction yet much of the public remains unaware of the most rapid mass extinction since the dinosaurs. The response is the Amphibian Conservation Action Plan under which priority species are studied in captivity so that solutions can be identified. The Clarion Limestone Amphibian Research Center (CLARC) is the first public-school laboratory facility in existence. Clarion-Limestone Area School District (C-L), Center for Conservation Studies (CCS), and Clarion University of Pennsylvania (CUP) have united to address global amphibian declines while providing high quality education to students and educational programs to communities. CLARC is student-run and student-built. Students of Clarion University and Clarion-Limestone have spent tireless hours from brainstorming to digging holes in the attempt to build a regionally if not globally unique facility right here in Clarion. In a time where it seems hard to inspire young people, this research center and those who founded it are installing passion into today’s youth. This research center is our way of leaving the world a better place.
This facility offers opportunities in research and education that are critical for students pursuing careers in competitive fields. By working together and mentoring each other, students involved become motivated and confident. The education programs offered at this facility reach children and adults alike helping them to understand conservation on a local and global scale. In the fall of 2013, the community will be able to come to the facility and come face to face with amphibians. In total, the facility will impart enthusiasm and success to all those involved. At the Clarion-Limestone Amphibian Research Center, passion is contagious.


The Clarion-Limestone Amphibian Research Center is a research and education facility located in Clarion, Pennsylvania. We promote conservation of native amphibians while providing students with opportunities to excel in professional careers.

The Center for Conservation Studies facilitates and provides funding for scientific research leading to sound conservation practices and public education programs demonstrating science-based conservation and sustainability.
