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, nearby at the Buck Island Ranch (10,500 acres), and the restoration landscape of the Archbold Reserve (3,648 acres) adjacent to the Station.
