Archbold Biological Station, founded in 1941, is the primary division of Archbold Expeditions, a non-profit organization established by Richard Archbold. Archbold Biological Station protects a 5,193-acre globally significant Florida scrub preserve located on the southern end of the Lake Wales Ridge, an ancient sandy ecosystem of south-central Florida. Other Archbold divisions are the working ranch, the MacArthur Agro-ecology Research Center (10,500 acres), nearby at Buck Island Ranch, and the restoration landscape of the Archbold Reserve (3,648 acres) adjacent to the Station.
