IV. C. 4. Green Oaks

Green Oaks is a biological field station providing an outdoor classroom for teaching and an undisturbed and protected area for research. Basic principles of plant and animal ecology govern management and use policies.

Recreational use of Green Oaks has been traditional and continues, subject to reasonable regulations. The property is available at specified times for the kind of recreation that it can uniquely provide, such as hiking, camping, fishing, boating, bird watching, and other facets of the enjoyment of nature. It is not available for the kind of recreation that can be provided elsewhere, such as social parties and games.

It is necessary to limit the number of people using Green Oaks for recreation, particularly for fishing, to preserve the esthetic qualities of the area and to prevent disturbance to the research and conservation projects. The use of Green Oaks is restricted to members of the Knox College community--employees and their immediate families, currently enrolled students, and alumni.

All persons are expected to abide by the regulations available at the Field Station registration booth. Times for recreational use: Wednesday, Saturdays and Sundays year round; overnight camping on Saturday nights (and Friday nights with permission from the Director). For additional information, see the Director of Green Oaks.

IV. C. 5. Charge Accounts

Faculty members may charge purchases in the Bookstore and the dining rooms to their personal accounts. All accounts are payable in full within 30 days of receipt of a bill. Any employee with charges to an account 90 days old will lose the charging privilege. Any employee terminating employment must make arrangements to pay any balance in their account before their last day of employment at Knox.
